If you have either a friend or family member who died in the Vietnam War, you'll have a chance this weekend to honor their memory.
A traveling three-quarter sized replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial will be on display at the Catavolos Funeral Home and Rose Hill Burial Park located on West Market Street in Fairlawn.
Opening ceremonies will be at 6:30 Friday night. The wall will be open for viewing 24 hours a day through late Sunday night. Over 20,000 visitors are expected over the weekend.
Linda Lepke is the Office Manager for Catavolos Funeral Home. She says they began working on the project back in June to bring the traveling wall to Fairlawn.
Appearing on the 1590 WAKR Ray Horner Morning Show, Lepke said computers will be accessible over the weekend on site to locate the name of your friend or loved one quickly.
The wall is 240 feet long and 8 feet high and contains the names of more than 58,000 Americans who either died in Vietnam or are missing in action.
Lepke says the Funeral Home wants to give back to the community and show that they support those who gave their lives in Vietnam.
