Spencer County http://wkyufm.org en Traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall on Public Display in Spencer County, Indiana http://wkyufm.org/post/traveling-vietnam-veterans-memorial-wall-public-display-spencer-county-indiana <p></p><p>A traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall is making its debut in Spencer County, Indiana, Monday morning. The 350-foot-long wall contains the names of all U.S. military personnel killed in Vietnam.</p><p>It's being escorted by motorcyclists from the Denny's in the town of Dale starting at 9 a.m Monday, and is scheduled to be brought down Main Street in Granview at 9:30.</p><p>Vietnam War veteran Frank Richey led the effort to bring the replica--known as <a href="http://www.vvmf.org/twth" target="_blank">The Wall That Heals</a>--to Spencer County. He told WKU Public Radio that he hopes those who haven't been able to see the Vietnam Memorial in Washington will come see the traveling replica.</p><p>"Not everybody gets the chance to go to Washington, D.C., and see the real wall. And a lot of kids don't get a chance to go. This way, I'm bringing the wall to the people in my community of Spencer County," Richey said.</p><p>The Wall That Heals will be on public display at the Grandview Ball Field in Spencer County from September 11 through the 15. Richey says he'll be staying in a trailer nearby, and will be on site 24 hours a day during the time the wall is on display.
