The Wall contains the names of American who gave their last measure of devotion to the nation during the Vietnam War. As of Memorial Day 2015, there are 58,307 names. These are names of military personnel who were wounded in Vietnam between 1957 and 1975 and ultimately died of their wounds. (1959 and 1975 are the years inscribed on The Wall.)

The village has reached out to the Township Supervisors and VFW and American Legion Posts across the Southland to make this event one shared by all residents.
