The NewDay USA Foundation and NewDay USA, a firm focused on helping active duty military personnel, veterans and their families to achieve their financial and housing goals, recently sponsored The Wall That Heals for a one-day visit to Fulton, Md. The Wall That Heals is a mobile exhibition featuring a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C that is designed to travel to communities throughout the United States. While in Fulton, The Wall That Heals will be parked behind NewDay USA’s headquarters and open to the public.
The exterior sides of the trailer that carries The Wall That Heals open to become a mobile museum. Information cases display photos of service members whose names are found on The Wall, along with letters and memorabilia left at The Wall in D.C. The Museum also includes a map of Vietnam and a chronological overview of the conflict in Vietnam.
Last month, NewDay USA executives and employees participated in the first Wall washing of the season at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. as a kickoff to their new partnership with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. The NewDay USA Foundation is sponsoring a portion of the construction of The Education Center at the Wall, a technologically-innovative learning facility to be built on the grounds of the Vietnam Veterans and Lincoln Memorials. The NewDay USA Foundation’s primary philanthropic mission is to provide grants and charitable contributions to non-profit organizations that support veterans, active-duty service members and military families.
