The Veterans of Foreign Wars Jackson Harris Post 1191 in Paducah presented a wreath laying ceremony Thursday evening to honor the 58,318 names on The Wall That Heals.
Along with teaching the students, Vietnam veteran and retired teacher Dave Carr visited the wall to find a specific name.
The Wall That Heals is a powerful experience for Vietnam veterans. One of them, Bob Harris, has carried the pain of losing eight friends in battle for 50 years.
Thursday night an opening ceremony was held for The Wall That Heals at Carson Park in Paducah. During that ceremony, Kendra Robinson did a solo of the song ‘Veterans Hallelujah.’
