MARION, AR - "The Moving Wall," the nation's traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial, will be in Marion August 9-14.

The Crittenden County Veterans Memorial Committee is hosting the wall's visit.  The memorial will be displayed on the grounds of the Marion Intermediate School just off Interstate-55 in Marion.  Set-up will take place on August 9, with opening ceremonies on Thursday, August 10.  The wall will be open 24 hours per day from August 10-14.

"This historical visit is a great honor for everyone in the Mid-South, said Claude Steele, Sr., committee chairman.  "The memorial helps bring healing to veterans and families and friends of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms in Vietnam, especially those who may not have the opportunity to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C."
