Craig The Moving Wall project started with a motorcycle escort through town yesterday and ceremonies start at 11 a.m. today and go through Monday at Loudy-Simpson Park.
The wall is open 24 hours a day until the final closing at noon Monday.
There will be special "Taps" services each night at sunset. The newspaper will have the calendar of events listed.
Volunteer training started yesterday and roadside directional signs for visitors will be posted. There are scheduled bagpipers, helicopters and F-16 jet flyovers.
Join with others and visit the wall to pay respect to more than 58,000 servicemen and women who lost their lives during the Vietnam conflict.
See you at the wall.
