BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — The Wall That Heals, a mobile half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., will stand in Seaside Park this week, after a Wednesday morning motorcade from Westport’s Sherwood Island State Park.
The city and the National Association of Naval Veterans Port 5 has enlisted the support of local motorcyclist organizations to escort the Wall to Seaside Park beginning at 9 a.m. in Westport.
The ceremonies continue with a procession at 10 a.m. The Wall will be on display for the public from 6 p.m. May 4 through noon on May 7.
The original wall was built by the nonprofit Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund in 1980. The mobile replica has traveled around the world.
