  • I.S.C.A.R.  members had the honor of placing a wreath at the “Wall that Heals”. The wall that heals is a traveling mini version of the Vietnam Memorial intended to allow people who cannot afford the travel to D.C. a way to see the memorial. I.S.C.A.R. State president Jacob Shadinger was included in the ceremony and all of the members in attendance had a wonderful time honoring our Vietnam veterans by placing flags at the base of the wall. I hope everyone takes the time to see when the wall will be in your area, and I urge you to attend the beautiful ceremony.
