Vietnam War memorial replica on display in Fremont

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

U.S troops killed in the Vietnam War are being honored in Fremont. A traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is now on display at DeVry University.

The scaled-down version of the wall was created by a Florida couple in 1993 so veterans and their relatives who couldn't travel to Washington DC could experience it.

The wall contains the names of the more than 58,000 U.S. men and women killed during the war.

It will be on display through Friday at the DeVry campus on Dumbarton Circle in Fremont.
