Hayden Vietnam and Remembrance Walls
The Kootenai County Veterans Council, in partnership with the City of Hayden, is proud to welcome The Wall That Heals, a traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. and the Global War on Terror Wall of Remembrance. The Wall That Heals display set-up will be on Aug. 15 at the Main Ball Field at Hayden City Park, located on Honeysuckle Avenue just east of Government Way. The Opening Ceremony will be held on Friday, Aug. 16 at 10 a.m. at the site. The Wall That Heals tours communities throughout the United States, allowing the souls enshrined on the Memorial to exist once more among family and friends in the peace and comfort of familiar surroundings. The Global War on Terror Wall of Remembrance memorializes the two million veterans and civilians involved in the Global War on Terror. There are 11,000 names represented of those who have given their lives. Under the supervision of volunteers, both walls will remain open for public viewing 24 hours a day, with a closing ceremony Aug. 18 at 6 p.m. Viewings of the memorials are free and open to the public. For those visiting these displays the following guidelines will be in effect: a Quiet Zone will be observed; items are prohibited; food and beverages are not permitted; bags/purses/backpacks are not allowed; there is no smoking and no pets permitted, except for certified service dogs.
