The Vietnam Veterans Traveling Memorial – The Wall That Heals

Saturday, April 7, 2018

The City of Gardena hosted the Vietnam Veterans Traveling Memorial, a mobile replica of the memorial in Washington D.C. The display honors over 58,000 Americans who paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect their country. I had the honor of helping to welcome this emotional display to the South Bay, along with Rep. Maxine Waters, State Senator Steve Bradford, and local elected officials. We also had the privilege of listening to the keynote speaker Judge Vince Okamoto, a Gardena resident and the most highly decorated Japanese-American to survive the Vietnam War.
