Vietnam Memorial traveling wall in Maquoketa

MAQUOKETA (KWWL) -

The half size replica of the Vietnam Veterans National Memorial in Washington, D.C. is coming to Eastern Iowa.

The Jackson County Moving Wall Committee raised $10,000 in six months time to bring the Vietnam moving wall to the Jackson County fairgrounds this weekend.

The wall will be set up Thursday.  Opening ceremonies take place at 4 p.m. The display will be set up through Monday.

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.
