Vietnam Wall Moves into Jefferson City
For veterans, this is more than just a ride.
"Very proud. I was really amazed at the number of people that came out and I was very proud to be in the back of that watching the line of motorcycles," moving wall organizer Don Hentges said.
They escorted this memorial to Jefferson City.
"I think it's great. It's good for the community and for the Vietnam veterans especially," said Jefferson City Veterans Council president Al Davis.
For many veterans watching this wall move down 63 was emotional. All the different signs of support but the real emotions will come out when they see this wall right here in front of the capitol.
"I would just want to encourage all Vietnam veterans to, no matter how painful it is, to even if they can't go up to the wall to at least be in the presence of it and to get some healing," said Hentges.
Hentges hopes the wall will bring people together and remember those that've been lost. The wall will be erected on the lawn of the Capitol. It'll be open 24 hours a day starting Tuesday until November 28th.
