Vietnam War Memorial will be at fair

A special feature of the 2011 Boone County Fair will be the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Moving Wall, which will be located on the fairgrounds July 8-11.

The wall will be arriving at the fairgrounds in Albion on July 6. Set up will begin on July 7, and the wall will be ready for viewing on July 8.

The Moving Wall, completed in 1984, is a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, which pays tribute to the nearly 58,000 Americans who died in the Vietnam War.

This is the same Moving Wall that was displayed in Tilden 2 1/2 years ago.
