War Memorial Arriving in September

LOVES PARK (WIFR) – A special display memorializing veterans of the Vietnam War will be coming to Rockford this fall.

The Wall That Heals will be at the Field of Honor in Loves Park as part of the Rockford chapter VietNow’s POW/MIA Remembrance Day Ceremony.

The half-size replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall will travel from Washington DC and will stay from September 11th through the 14th.

“There are over 100 names on the wall that are from The Winnebago County area and this is an opportunity for a lot of people that have not been able to make the trip to Washington, D.C. to come and see their friends’ and loved one’ names on the wall,” said Rockford VietNow Vice President Loren Salzman.

Loves Park is also home to the Arthur Anderson Peace Park which includes several monuments dedicated to veterans.
