The Traveling Vietnam Wall will be on display at the Putnam County Veterans Memorial Park from noon today until September 25th at 3pm. It will be open for visits 24 hours a day. County Executive MaryEllen Odell says this is a great educational opportunity for students to see a version of the Vietnam Wall without having to go to Washington D-C. Students will also be able to meet with local veterans from Putnam County who may have served in the war. The Traveling Wall is an 80 percent scale replica of the national Memorial and includes a display that features every war America has been involved in from the Revolutionary War through today. There is also a half-size replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This event is a collaboration between the Putnam County Veterans Service Agency and the Putnam County Joint Veterans Council. The PCJVC is a local non-profit Veterans Service Organization. A closing ceremony will take place at 11am Sunday, September 25, which is Gold Star Mother’s Day, and will feature a concert by The Hudson Valley Council Band.
