The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall arrived in Marshall on Wednesday evening, escorted by the Marshall and Slayton fire departments, the Lyon County Sheriff’s Department and about three dozen members of the Patriot Guard Motorcycle Riders. The Wall will be on display Friday through Sunday at Independence Park, with an opening ceremony at 7 p.m. Friday. A three-fifths scale of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C., the Wall stands 6 feet tall at the center and covers almost 300 feet from end to end.
