Ten-year-old Billy Munoz and his father traveled to the nation’s capital to visit The Wall, a war memorial dedicated to Americans who fought and died in the Vietnam War. This story presents a poignant depiction of one family’s loss and their pilgrimage to the symbolic structure that binds them to millions of others affected by the Vietnam War. Billy comes to understand that “The Wall” is a place of sadness and loss as well as a place of honor and pride. Based on the book by Eve Bunting.
