The Wall That Heals replica

The Wall that Heals is an exact replica of the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington, DC, only smaller. A few years ago, the traveling version of the wall came to central Pennsylvania. So many people came to visit the wall that local organizations decided to raise enough money so that it could become a permanent attraction in the Altoona area.
