This week, Concordia is hosting their Concordia Fall Festival and welcoming the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall to the Concordia baseball fields on the south side of Concordia, just off Highway 23.

The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall is one of a few traveling walls that travel across the United States and gives Vietnam Vets the chance to see a small version of the Vietnam Wall up close.

“Our wall is 3/5 scale of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C.,” said wall manager Greg Welsh.  “It stands six feet tall at the center and covers almost 300 feet from end to end. The Traveling Memorial stands as a reminder to the great sacrifices made during Vietnam and gives vets and veterans’ families the chance to reflect on sacrifices made.”

The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall is part of the Vietnam and All Veterans of Brevard in Brevard County, Fla. According to Welsh, this is the first time this particular wall has traveled to Missouri.

The wall will be available to be seen 24 hours a day on Sept. 4-8 and will have name locators available from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. each day. Additionally, the “Through the Eyes” exhibit, a collection of memorabilia from both the Vietnam War and the home front, combat photographs, weapons and ammo will also be on display.
