WILLIAMS, Ariz. — The Moving Wall Vietnam display, a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, will be in Williams June 4-6 at Glassburn Park.

An opening ceremony is scheduled for June 4 at 10 a.m. and will feature guest speakers, including Arizona congressmen and other politicians.

The exhibit, a 252-foot mobile replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C., commemorates the 58,320 American service members who died or are unaccounted for from service during the Vietnam War. The Moving Wall has made its way to more than 1,000 cities since 1984.

In addition to The Moving Wall, a Remember the Fallen display honoring military servicemen and women killed in action since September 11, 2001, will be on display on Taber Street in Williams.

Both events are free and open to the public.
