The Traveling Vietnam Wall Comes to Eden Today
Today will be a big day in Southern Erie County as one of the most reverent pieces of American history will make its way into Eden. The Traveling Vietnam Wall will make it's way to the American Legion Post 880 with an enormous motorcycle escort starting at Native Pride.The escort begins at Native Pride in Irving at around 3 p.m. today. Over 1,000 bikes will take the wall up Rte 62 into Eden (at the Corn Fest grounds). The wall will be available for viewing 24 hours a day starting at noon tomorrow (Thursday) through Sunday at 3 p.m. when a closing ceremony is planned. Make a rubbing, bring your kids and your tissues. This is one heck of a powerful thing to see and a great way to honor the heroes of this country that died fighting in the Vietnam War. Stop by and introduce yourself and thank one of the many Vets that will no doubt be on hand at any time!
