Traveling Vietnam Wall arrives today

June 20, 2018
Estherville News

The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall arrives in Estherville at 1 p.m. today. Residents are encouraged to line Central Avenue to welcome the Wall to town. The Wall is a 3/5 scale of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. It stands six feet tall at the center and covers almost 300 feet from end to end.

This Traveling Memorial stands as a reminder of the great sacrifices made during the Vietnam War. It was made for the purpose of helping heal and rekindle friendships and to allow people the opportunity to visit loved ones in their home town who otherwise may not be able to make the trip to Washington.
