A replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial will be displayed in western Massachusetts this summer as part of a national tour. 

Thousands of people are expected to visit the exhibit which will be at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield. 

A local planning committee has started working on the details.  WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Chris Lizotte, director of the West Springfield Department of Veterans Services.

Before joining WAMC, Paul was a reporter and anchor at WRKO in Boston. He was news director for more than a decade at WTAG in Worcester. Paul has won more than two dozen Associated Press Broadcast Awards. He won an Edward R. Murrow award for reporting on veterans’ healthcare for WAMC in 2011. Born and raised in western New York, Paul did his first radio reporting while he was a student at the University of Rochester.
