Veterans Memorial Park, 996 S. Broadway, Truth or Consequences
In February 2003, a half-scale replica of the world-renowned Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall — conceived by artist Maya Lin and originally opened to the public in Washington DC in 1982 — made its permanent home in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. This wall was one of a handful of replicas that traveled throughout the nation (and the traveling walls are still traveling!).
15 years have passed since the wall was installed at Veterans Memorial Park, during which time the weather has taken a toll on the surface of the wall.
Five years ago a plan was hatched to replace the original replica with a granite version of the same scale. The new wall will officially be dedicated by the City of Truth or Consequences on November 10, 2018 at 10am.
