Parson Visits "Wall That Heals"

STOCKTON, MO. – Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson was in Stockton today to honor fallen soldiers with the “Wall that Heals.”

Parson said during his speech, “From 1961 through 1975 over 152,000 Missourians served in the Vietnam conflict, 1,418 lost their lives, four were awarded the medal of honor. This exhibit is called the wall that heals because it was a conflict that divided our nation with deep wounds. This wall reminds us that those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice for us to enjoy freedom.”

“I think its a great opportunity for people to learn about the Vietnam conflict, number one, but then I think to honor the people who served that wen over there to give their ultimate sacrifices and those people are here today in remembrance of what they did,” Parsons said. “I think for people to understand what they went through and what our country went through at that time is important. To have this in Stockton Missouri, its huge for this community, and you've seen that through the support of the community today."
