Embracing our Military


WQPT created the Embracing our Military initiative in 2013 to raise awareness of issues important to the military community. In 2017 (the year of Ken Burns’ Vietnam War documentary) they were able to bring “The Wall That Heals” — a 250-foot replica of the Vietnam Memorial plus an education center – to the Quad Cities area where they staged community engagement and educational events in conjunction with its visit.
