The Wall That Heals, a traveling 375 foot, 3/4 style replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC, comes to Greenfield Indiana July 11-14, 2019 (this is a free event open to the public, Thursday through Sunday, 24 hours each day).
 
Here’s my podcast interview with David Stillinger, Hancock County Coroner and Funeral Director/Owner of Stillinger Family Funeral Home – Pasco Chapel, who is the event organizer and host site for this event:
 
 
200 volunteers are needed to help with this event. For more information about this event or to volunteer, visit https://www.greenfieldwall.com.
On a personal note, this will be a deeply personal and emotional experience for me, not only because my college roommate is on The Wall, but because I am a US Air Force veteran who served in southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. And speaking as a former four-year employee of a funeral home in Franklin County, this seems to me to be the ideal setting to present such a traveling exhibit.
I encourage you to visit this exhibit to reflect on one of the most tumultuous periods of American history and how it affected our society.

There’s so much to see and do all over Indiana that sometimes it’s difficult to decide what to do next. But I’m trying! In today’s episode of the Around Indiana podcast, hear Emily Schneider, Marketing Coordinator for the Noble County Convention and Visitors Bureau in Rome City, talk about things to do in her northeastern Indiana county (35 miles north of Fort Wayne, 60 miles east of South Bend).
