Lynnhurst Cemetery  

2300 West Adair Drive, Knoxville, TN 37918

Hosted by Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett

The Wall That Heals exhibition features a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.  and is brought to Knoxville by Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, Berry Lynnhurst Funeral Home and the Vietnam Veterans of America Capt. Bill Robertson Chapter 1078.

It is approximately 250 feet in length, and like the original Memorial is erected in a chevron-shape.  The replica is constructed of powder-coated aluminum, supported by an aluminum frame, and is made up of 24 individual panels.

As on The Wall, the names on The Wall That Heals are listed by day of casualty.  Beginning at the center/apex, the names start on the East Wall (right-hand side) working their way out to the end of that wing, picking up again at the far end of the West Wall (left-hand side) and working their way back in to the center/apex, joining the beginning and end of the conflict at the center.

East Tennessee PBS is proud to assist in the promotion of this important event and encourage you to plan a visit.
