WASHINGTON and ARLINGTON, Va. — The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) and the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) have announced the 2021 tour schedule for The Wall That Heals, a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall that travels the nation each year in recognition of U.S. military personnel who served during the Vietnam War.

In addition to a three-quarter-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the exhibit features a mobile education unit.
