More than 58,000 men and women died in Vietnam during the war. That is so much loss and pain.

To honor the sacrifice of so many, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund brings The Wall That Heals around the country. It's a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The Fund chose the United Way of NE Minnesota to host The Wall in Chisholm.

Volunteers set up the panels up at the football field on Wednesday, and called it an honor.

The Wall That Heals opens at midnight on Thursday morning. It will remain open 24 hours a day, until 2pm on Sunday.

Other events to note:

Opening ceremony: Thursday at 11am

Honor ceremony: Saturday at 10am

Closing ceremony: Sunday at 2pm
