Honoring Vietnam Soldiers This Weekend at Moving Wall

Updated:
You can honor more than 58,000 men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam in a variety of ways this weekend. The U.S. Coast Guard flew over the Moving Wall in Cadillac Friday afternoon, where tens of thousands of people are expected to pay their respects throughout the weekend. This Moving Wall is the largest traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. Coordinators say they hope the weekend's events will provide healing to local families who lost loved ones in Vietnam. There's a special event Saturday evening to honor more than a dozen local soldiers whose names are on the Wall.
