The Johns Creek Veterans Association is raising money for the installation of the Vietnam Veteran's Wall That Heals(TM) at the Johns Creek Veterans Memorial Walk in Newtown Park.
The Wall That Heals originally came to Johns Creek in 2017. Johns Creek was one of only two host cities in Georgia. The 250-foot replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial came to Johns Creek March 29 – April 2, 2017 in a 4-day visit. The “Wall That Heals” honors the more than three million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed forces during the Vietnam War and it bears the names of the more than 58,000 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.
The total cost to install the Wall That Heals is approximately $400,000 which includes all landscaping, hardscapes, sidewalks, benches, etc. The addition of the “Wall That Heals” in Johns Creek would bring the number of these installations to four outside of Washington, DC. An artist’s rendering of the site is attached to this application.
The replica Wall is approximately 250 feet in length and, similar to the original memorial, is erected in a chevron-shape. The replica is constructed of powder-coated aluminum, supported by an aluminum frame, and is made up of 24 individual panels, each containing six columns of names.
