Jim King and Ben Flerlage share why they think the Traveling Vietnam Memorial is important for remembering the past and for teaching lessons in the future. The Traveling Vietnam War Memorial Wall is in Springfield May 10 through 13 at the AMVETS location on 6th Street
The Traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is in Springfield this weekend and organizers and veterans say it’s an important way for anyone affected by the war to find some peace and remind future veterans to not fall victim to mistakes from the past.
Visitors can see the replica wall with the names of veterans who died in the Vietnam war at the AMVETS location on South 6th Street.
The wall will be on display through Sunday. Vietnam veterans held a MIA ceremony Thursday afternoon to welcome the wall to Springfield.
