The American Legion Post 17 is honored to bring The Wall That Heals, a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D. C. to Camden May 3 - May 6.  The Wall That Heals will be hosted by Historic Camden, providing a 24-hour, multi-day experience which includes an educational opportunity for local schools and organizations on the history of the Vietnam era. This will be the only South Carolina site on the 2018 Tour. The exhibit includes "The Wall That Heals" and a mobile Education Center comprised of digital displays of photos of service members whose names are on The Wall; letters and memorabilia representative of items left at The Wall in D.C.; a map of Vietnam and a chronological overview of the Vietnam War. The exhibits tell the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the era surrounding the conflict, and are designed to put American experiences in Vietnam in a historical and cultural context.
