A special opening ceremony for the Wall will be at the park at 7 p.m. today. A 200-foot-long wall commemorating the prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action was set up in the Park Side School Gym Thursday as part of the “Through the Eyes” exhibit that is accompanying the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall display. The displays will be up through Sunday at Independence Park and Park Side.
