Moving Vietnam wall memorial highlights Heritage Days

The moving Vietnam wall memorial is in Boonville and will stay through Monday morning.

BOONVILLE, Mo. - The moving Vietnam Wall Memorial arrived to Boonville this week and will be in town through the weekend until Monday. It will be on display for 24 hours a day.

The wall honors those who were killed in action during the Vietnam War. 

The wall lists names of veterans in chronological order by date of casualty.

Though the war was unpopular at the time, Vietnam veterans like Bob Bosma are honored by those who show gratitude for his efforts.

"It's one of the goose-pimply things where when someone comes up to you and says thanks for your service or sorry for your loss. It makes it worthwhile," said Bosma.
