WEST MEMPHIS, AR (WMC) - Dozens of bikers, including members of the Mid-South Patriot Guard riders and the Memphis Chapter of the Harley Owners Group paid tribute to Vietnam vets Wednesday. The riders gathered in West Memphis, Arkansas to escort the American Veterans Traveling Tribute Vietnam Wall into Tennessee. The wall will be at the Agricenter from Wednesday to Sunday.
The tribute includes an almost exact replica of the Vietnam Wall in Washington D.C. The wall is an 80 percent replica of the original. The traveling exhibit is in honor of those who have fallen, those who have served, and those who now serve our military.
For many veterans in the Mid-South, seeing this wall is a once in a lifetime experience.
