JONESBORO, AR - Jonesboro and Arkansas State University will soon be the temporary home of the mobile Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
The half-scale replica of the actual memorial wall in Washington, D.C. will be on display for a four-day run at ASU beginning March 17. The exhibit will be set-up in the tailgate area just west of Indian Stadium.
"When you look at a wall that has 58,256 names on it who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam...we want the high school kids, the middle school kids to come and see it and know what its all about," said event co-coordinator Thomas Davis.
