Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Amber Alert
Amber Alert - TEST

Legacy Projects > The Wall that Heals The Wall that Heals

The Wall that Heals, a ½ scale replica of the original in Washington, D.C., is coming to Carroll County in August of 2016. It will be set up in the Flora Park August 4-7. This is to honor the Vietnam Veterans and their families for the sacrifices that they made during that time period. Since it is 55 years since the beginning of the war, the committee felt this was a good year to tie in the Bicentennial of the great state of Indiana. The education of all those too young to remember that time should be a great benefit, to help them understand the past not only of Indiana, but of the United States.
