About Us

The Hopkins County Veterans Memorial Committee, the Sulphur Springs Independent School District, and the City of Sulphur Springs have joined efforts to honor Vietnam Veterans by co-hosting a site visit for The Wall That Heals coming to Hopkins County, Texas November 4-7, 2021. The Wall That Heals is a three-quarter sized replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., measuring 375’ long and 7.5’ tall at its apex. Etched in The Wall’s granite panels, are the names of over 58,000 men and women who sacrificed their lives serving overseas during the Vietnam War.

On Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2021, The Wall That Heals will arrive at the Sulphur Springs High School Track in a Semi Truck, escorted by Patriot Guard Riders, Christian Biker Club Riders, Law Enforcement, and Fire Department from a predetermined rendezvous site.

On Wednesday, Nov. 3rd, Volunteers will erect The Wall That Heals and the Mobile Education Center at the Sulphur Springs High School Track, 1210 Houston St, Sulphur Springs, TX 75482. It will be open for Visitors, 24 hours a day Thursday, November 4 through Sunday, November 7 closing Sunday at 2:00pm. There is no cost to visit The Wall That Heals

The Hopkins County Veterans Committee has long desired to bring The Wall That Heals to Sulphur Springs in order to honor our area’s surviving Vietnam Veterans, to remember the eleven men from Hopkins County who died in Vietnam and are engraved on The Wall’s granite panels, to educate our students on the historical facts of Vietnam War and the controversy surrounding it, and to finally welcome home America’s Vietnam Veterans the way they should have been. The Wall That Heals Hopkins County Committee is the collaborative effort of many individuals in various capacities to accomplish these goals.

The $10,000 cost for hosting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, The Wall That Heals has been donated by Mrs. Carol Gunn Vernon, resident of Sulphur Springs, Texas in loving memory of her family members that served in the Armed Forces. The HC Veterans Memorial Committee thanks Mrs. Vernon for her generosity and patriotism, and remembers her loved ones for their service to our Nation: Thomas W. Boyd, USAF (Korea and Vietnam); L.Z Arnold, USAAC (WWII); and Roy T. Arnold, USA (WWII).

Volunteers

Volunteers are a crucial part of The Wall That Heals experience for visitors that will travel to Sulphur Springs 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 Sulphur Springs. 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 yellow reflective vest 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, Nov. 3rd at the site, 5:30-6:00pm. Wherever you decide to volunteer, we are hopeful that your experience is personally rewarding.
