Yonkers to host Vietnam wall replica


The Vietnam Wall Diginity Memorial, a traveling replica of the Vietnam War Memorial located on the mall in Washington, D.C. comes to Yonkers next week for Veterans Day.

Scheduled to arrive Tuesday with a police motorcycle escort, the wall will be set up at Fleming Field and officially open to the public on Wednesday in a ceremony scheduled for 2 p.m. The wall is to receive a 24-hour honor guard staffed by volunteers, who will also be able to help visitors find the names of loved ones or friends who were killed in the war. The city is still looking for volunteers, who can call 914-377-6700 for more information.
