MIDDLETOWN, Ind.–You’ve probably heard about the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. A replica of that wall is in Middletown this weekend. 

The Wall That Heals is an exhibition that features a three-quarter size replica of the original. It will be at Dietrich Park in downtown Middleton now through Sunday September 30 at 4 pm. 

“Of the 58,318 names on that wall, 17 guys grew up in Middletown. It’s amazing to us,” said Steve Thompson, Wall That Heals Public Relations Manager. 

He said Dietrich Park is the perfect location for it. 

“The wall is 375 feet long and it needs to be in a unique space to fit that. There’s a spot in Dietrich Park where it’s just perfect. It fits in like it was designed to be in this place,” Thompson said. 

Admission is free and open 24 hours a day to see the wall. 

“A small little town like Middletown, this is where the Wall That Heals likes to go. They like to be in small towns because it really gives you that feel like you’re in America,” Thompson said. 

The Vietnam Memorial is the most visited memorial in Washington, D.C.
