Volunteers are a crucial part of The Wall That Heals experience for visitors that will travel to Chambers County to see it. Our goal is for each Visitor to come away with great memories of the entire exhibit; and a very real understanding of the Vietnam War and its impact on the men and women who served, their friends and families, and our Nation. Our most important objective is that every Vietnam Veteran that visits this Memorial while in our community feels an appreciation for their service and sacrifice and experiences true healing for a deep and long-standing pain.
The Wall That Heals will be staffed with Volunteers around the clock for the duration it is in our care here in Chambers County. There will be many visitors from all over the state and country, including students coming from the local and area school districts. You will be issued a badge to identify you while assisting and attending at The Wall, or manning the Command Post where Volunteer Hospitality and the First Aid Station are housed. You will be asked to attend a short Volunteer training on Wednesday, October 26 at the site at 6 p.m. Wherever you decide to volunteer, we are hopeful that your experience is personally rewarding.
There are a few opportunities to volunteer:
- Assisting with Set Up of The Memorial
- Assisting with Tear Down of The Memorial
- The Command Post, our Volunteer Refreshment Station
- The Wall (either at the Visitors Tent or Assisting Visitors)
Please note: the suggested minimum age for volunteers is 13. All volunteers under the age of 18 must be supervised by an adult.
