Replica Vietnam Veterans Memorial coming to Lexington

American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT)
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- A replica of the Vietnam Wall will be on display in Lexington next month. The Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs is sponsoring the memorial, which will be put up at the Kentucky Horse Park.

The American Veterans Traveling Tribute Vietnam Wall is about 300 feet long. And like the Washington memorial, it displays the names of veterans who died during the war. The department of veteran affairs says visitors will be able to make a pencil rubbing of names of loved ones.

The traveling wall will be at the horse park 24 hours a day beginning at noon, Thursday, July 9, and continuing through 3 p.m., Sunday, July 12. Organizers say there will be no admission charge or parking fee for visitors.
