San Luis Obispo County is one of just 39 places in the nation in 2018 to host The Wall That Heals, a mobile exhibit that honors veterans and preserves the legacy of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The exhibit will return to San Luis Obispo for the first time in 21 years thanks to the efforts of the County Veterans Services Office.
Welcome Home Military Heroes was honored to participate in the escort that picked up the wall in Santa Maria and took it to its week long resting place in SLO. When the wall arrived we also had members holding a flag line for it!
Some of our members stayed and help set up the wall that has over 58,000 names of our fallen Military Heroes who died while serving in Vietnam!
During the week long stay we had members attend every day to pay their respects.
On Saturday, March 30, we held a flag line with over 40 members participating. During this time we had moment of silence, talked about how we love our Military Heroes, and listen to stories of those who fought in the war.
