The Wall That Heals is a three-quarter-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) in 1996 created the replica wall to travel to communities throughout the US. It displays the names of more than 58,000 service members who died in the Vietnam War.

The 375-foot long, 7.5-foot tall wall be open to public viewing 24 hours a day from Thursday, June 20 to Sunday, June 23 at 5 p.m. A mobile education museum will also be at the chapel.

"This traveling exhibit provides thousands of veterans who have been unable to cope with the prospect of facing The Wall to find the strength and courage to do so within their own communities, thus allowing the healing process to begin," said a statement from Faith Bible Chapel in a release.

Nearly 600 communities throughout the nation have displayed the wall, which is comprised of 140 numbered panels.

Faith Bible Chapel is located at 6250 Wright St. in Arvada.
