A few weeks ago, we told you about how proud we were to work on “The Wall That Heals” project for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. You can read more about the project here in a previous blog post.
We’d like to let you know about a few special days as The Wall That Heals was getting ready to leave on its first tour stop.
As The Wall was leaving our facility, the trailer stopped for a quick ceremony as Tim Tetz addressed veterans, attendees, The Patriot Guard, local police & NYS Troopers and Creatacor employees.
The trailer was then escorted to the thruway – on its way to the first stop in Texas.
The day before, the apex of the wall was set up in our warehouse and local veterans were invited to stop in.
Here is a short video chronicling these two days:
We’d also like to share some local news coverage about this special project and the send-off…

Although The Wall That Heals will not be making a stop locally in 2018, it will be within a few hours drive a few times during the tour. We hope you’ll be able to pay it a visit. The 2018 schedule for The Wall That Heals Tour can be viewed here.
We are so happy and proud to have been involved in this very special project. Great job all!

Do you know when the wall will be in North Idaho
Hi Jim, it looks like it will not be making a stop in Idaho in 2018. Check the tour schedule here to see if there is another stop you may be able to make it to.
