Vietnam Memorial Replica Goes On Display At West Hartford Town Hall


The wind Thursday morning whipped at the line of small American flags that had just been staked on the town hall lawn. The sky was cloudy and rain seemed imminent.

Nearby, in the town parking lot on South Main Street, was a flatbed truck that had arrived in town earlier with a police and motorcycle escort. It carried the 74 black panels of the Moving Wall, a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in
Washington D.C.

Inscribed on the Wall's panels are the names of more than 58,000 American service members killed or missing in action in the
Vietnam War..............

There will be a candlelight vigil at the wall at 8:45 p.m. Saturday. The wall moves on to upstate New York on Monday. (Cloe Poisson, Hartford Courant / June 16, 2010)
