The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and Lilly Broadcasting have teamed up, to bring the Wall That Heals to Erie on Memorial Day Weekend.

Prior to the arrival of the Wall, we are honoring local Veterans and their families.

The latest installment features Kenneth Kensil.

He served in Vietnam from 1965 until 1967.

When he returned home to Erie, he embarked on a 32-year law enforcement career.

Five years ago, his Military time and all of the emotion and effort serving his Country, caught up to him.

His Wall that Heals countdown is well underway and it will be a very special time for this local hero.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is also honoring those who served with a new program. 

It's called the In-Memory program and it honors Veterans who returned home and later died.

Applications are due by April 29th.
