The Moving Wall has opened at Batavia’s Veteran’s Home.
Opening ceremonies were held tonight at the traveling replica of Washington’s Vietnam Memorial.
The Wall was ushered in with all military respects.
Dr. Patrick Welch was the keynote speaker. He is a Vietnam Veteran, and the Director of the Center for Veterans and Family Services.
Welch says the original Wall in Washington did not come without controversy.
James Miles of Warsaw visited the Wall today. He served in Vietnam from 1965 through 1967.
Miles found some of his comrades on the Moving Wall.
