The Museum Has Proudly Added a New Exhibit. The Display is called “22 Days in April 1967.”
The St. Charles County Veterans Museum is honored to be a recipient of a retired portion of the “Wall that Heals”. This Panel, 18-E, contains 653 names of those who died in Vietnam from 8-APR to 30-APR 1967. Our panel represents just 1.1% of those killed in Vietnam.
A three-quarter scale replica of the original Vietnam Wall Memorial in Washington DC, it is constructed of Avonite, a synthetic granite, and its 140 numbered panels are supported by an aluminum frame. The traveling exhibit honors the more than three million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces in the Vietnam War. It bears the names of the 58,281 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam. The 27th season of “The Wall That Heals” begins on 24-MAR 2022 in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. The exhibit will visit 29 communities throughout the year.
Like the original Vietnam Wall Memorial in Washington DC, The Wall That Heals is erected in a chevron-shape, and visitors can do name rubbings of individual service member’s names on The Wall.
Panel 18-E includes ten Missourians. Each of their stories are included in this book. The St. Charles County Veterans Museum is honored to be a recipient of Panel 18-E and will endeavor to pay tribute to all of the 653 soldiers whose names are etched forever in the nation’s memory.
In the weeks ahead, the museum will publish the stories of all the soldiers on the wall.
