Village approves final budget

Traveling Vietnam memorial will be on display


The display requires 250 linear feet on a flat, paved surface. Therefore it can not be displayed on Hall of Fame grounds, Horn said. The display will be open 24 hours a day for three days and will be free to see, although donations are accepted.

“They prefer it to be on display 24 hours a day because some visitors like to see it in a more private setting,” Horn said. “The wall folks are very adamant that it is accessible to everyone and free. Donations are accepted, but it is not a hard sell by any means.”

Horn said that volunteers will administer the display and that the Hall of Fame will cover any electric or incidental costs to the village. 

“There is a husband and wife team that travels with the wall,” he said. “They can’t be awake 24 hours a day, so they ask for volunteers and they usually have 4-6 teams that help them in shifts.”
