From Thursday, July 4 through Sunday, July 7, the Dundee Township Park District (Illinois) hosted the Wall That Heals. The Wall is a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. The replica stands 8 feet tall and at its highest point is 375 feet long. It contains all 58,000 names of those brave Americans who lost their lives during the Vietnam War. The LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry was represented each day by the Kare 9s and their veteran handlers.
This was an extremely moving time for all who attended, especially those who served and, by the grace of God, returned from Vietnam. Despite very hot conditions, the K-9s served with their usual compliment of mercy, compassion and love.
