The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports a dedication at the memorial wall's new temporary home is scheduled for March 21. Commissioned by Texas-based funeral service provider Dignity Memorial, the wall has traveled to more than 200 cities since 1990.
Though smaller than the actual Vietnam Memorial in Washington, the replica still stands 8 feet high and measures 240 feet long. Its surface is inscribed with the names of more than 58,000 military service members who died or were declared missing in Vietnam.
The National Infantry Museum is preparing a site covering nearly 2 acres to house the wall replica.
