Vietnam memorial visits Indy this weekend





Thursday night, a moving monument to the Vietnam war comes home to Indiana. The Moving Wall is a scaled-down replica of the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington.

Over 58,000 names have come to represent one of America's most costly and divisive wars. Those are the names of the military men and women who fought and died in Vietnam. The Vietnam Veterans memorial in Washington is the permanent monument.

There is also the Moving Wall - a half-size replica that has been touring the country for more than 20 years. After a six-year absence, it is now back at Lawrence's Ft. Harrison. No matter where the wall travels, there is a universal reaction from veterans and civilians.
