he five days that The Moving Wall, a replica of the Vietnam War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., was in Washington at the Fairgorunds was a great history lesson about the war, which began with the first American military casualties in the late 1950s, and ended in 1975. Thousands of people visited The Moving Wall and many were youngsters, who, probably for the first time, learned something about that war. The other displays added to the event.

Many veterans of other wars this country has been engaged in, and still is, viewed The Moving Wall. It brought back memories — some good, some not so good. It was a period here of great respect shown to our veterans.
