DeKalb County Veterans Tribute

July 13-16, 2017

Open 24 hours a day

Dear Friends:

In 1997 the DeKalb County Chapter of VietNow hosted the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall that Heals in Sycamore. Again in 2007 they brought The Wall back for a second visit. Now we would like to once again have this poignant memorial visit Sycamore to pay respect and honor to the veterans who served in the Vietnam War.

As in the past, we cannot do this without a tremendous amount of support from the community. The cost to get The Wall is $7,500. We will also need funds for additional items, i.e. school field trips, sound equipment rental, chairs, staging, publicity, etc. that will be needed for the event. Our goal is to raise $20,000-25,000 in order to provide a respectful presentation of the Memorial.

We have set up an account at Resource Bank entitled, "Vietnam Wall" where donations may be sent or they can be mailed to us at the address above. We will be recognizing each individual, business or organization that contributes based on the following donation structure:

  • $5000+ - 6 Stars
  • $1000 - 5 Stars
  • $750 - 4 Stars
  • $500 - 3 Stars
  • $250 - 2 Stars
  • $100 - 1 Star
  • Less than $100 - Honorable Mention

The dates for the Wall that Heals will be July 13-16, 2017 at Sycamore Park. Any money raised above what we need for this event will be used to honor veterans in DeKalb County.

There are also numerous opportunities for volunteers during the event. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at the phone number listed above. Ask for Steve or Renee.

Thank you in advance for your support of this very meaningful tribute to all who have served and are serving in the armed forces.

Please contribute today.
