The Wall That Heals is a brand new, traveling ¾ scale version of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C.
Portland is one of 40 communities chosen to host the wall.
The exhibit arrived at the Portland Community Center Wednesday evening, and also features a mobile education center that will show photographs of Coastal Bend Residents who died in the Vietnam War.
The closing ceremony will start at 2 P.M. and Portland Mayor David Krebs will be in attendance. There will a 21 gun salute and the playing of Taps. The breakdown of the wall will start at 2:30 P.M. and anyone can volunteer to help.
