Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall On Display In Johnstown

The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall is making its latest local stop this weekend. The wall is on display through Monday morning.

Fulton-Montgomery Community College is playing host to the wall, a smaller version of the permanent memorial in Washington DC that features the names of fallen servicemembers.

An emotional ceremony Saturday to rededicate the Tri-County Area Vietnam Veterans Memorial brought together relatives, local officials and community members to remember 37 local servicemembers killed in Vietnam.

The wall was also on display in Princetown, NY and West Springfield, Mass. in recent weeks.
