The Wall That Heals, a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, will be on display beginning Tuesday at Georgetown University.
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and Georgetown University have partnered to bring the Wall That Heals to the lawn of Healy Hall at Georgetown University.
The Wall That Heals, which is approximately 250 feet long, will remain on display through Columbus Day weekend.
There is no charge to visit the display and transportation to and from the National Mall will be provided at no cost.
Georgetown and the VVMF partnered to bring the replica to Georgetown since the original Vietnam Veterans Memorial has been closed to foot traffic due to the government shutdown that began Oct. 1.
“We all agree that people should have unlimited access to the memorials on the National Mall. Until that access is restored by Congress, we will continue doing all we can to make sure visitors can experience The Wall,” said VVMF President and Founder Jan Scruggs in a statement. “People from across the world come to see these sites, and we are so grateful to Georgetown University for its help in giving visitors a place to go.”
