The Vietnam Veterans Moving Wall was escorted into Danville Friday by cops, firemen and the Illinois Patriot Guard.

The wall is a half-sized replica of The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington.  It contains the names of over 58,000 Americans who died during the Vietnam Conflict, including 25 from Vermilion County.

The Wall is now on display in Danville near some other memorials, including the Korean-Vietnam and World War 2 memorials.  Lights have been set up around it and there is security there at all times. Visitors can stop by any time through Veterans’ Day.
