The Galveston County Chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America will host a veterans’ tribute wall in Texas City during Independence Day celebrations this weekend.
The wall, which is an 80-percent replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington, D.C., is 485 feet long and made up of 144 black panels inscribed with names of the more than 58,000 Americans killed in that war.
The Vietnam memorial is accompanied by other panels honoring those who served in all U.S. military conflicts and attacks against the country since World War I, organizers said.
