Replica Vietnam wall rolls into Wausau

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

A traveling replica of the Vietnam Wall memorial in Washington D.C. made its way to Wausau Wednesday.

A veterans group called the "Man of Honor Society" helped organize the four day event.

A parade of police, firefighters, veterans and supporters escorted the memorial into Wausau.

The procession of motorcycles and emergency vehicles was led by a trailer carrying the memorial.

Organizers also held a special ceremony at the Wausau VFW where the traveling tribute will be on display.

Crews will set up the wall, which is an 80 percent scale replica, Thursday morning at 7 a.m. It will then open to the public around noon.

Visitors can see the memorial in Wausau through Saturday.
