Vietnam War Memorial replica in Champlain for weekend

The motorcycle escorts for the “The Wall That Heals” Vietnam War Memorial Replica gather for a photo in front of the wall. The group escorted the memorial from Cumberland Corners to where it is being displayed at the Veterans for Foreign Wars Memorial Post at 600 St. Johns Road in Champlain. Inscribed on the replica are the names of 58,320 Vietnam servicemen and women who were declared dead during and after the war. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund puts on a tour for the replica each year around the U.S. This year’s tour includes 28 stops with Champlain being one of two visits in New York State. The replica will be open for visitors 24/7 through June 27.
