Marion County is honored to host the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall, a 3/5 scale of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C., that stands six feet tall at the center and covers almost 300 feet from end to end.
This Traveling Memorial is a reminder of the great sacrifices made during the Vietnam War. It was made to help heal and rekindle friendships and to allow people the opportunity to visit loved ones in their hometown who otherwise may not be able to make the trip to Washington.
A ceremony will take place on Thursday starting at 7 pm. The display will be open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9 am – 9 pm.
While in the area, visit the Marion County Vietnam Veterans Memorial at East Marion Park.
