Making it’s first return visit to the Los Angeles area in nine years, the Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall has been installed for the weekend at Pierce Brothers Vallhalla Memorial Park in North Hollywood (10621 Victory Boulevard; map) and the three-quarter-sized replica of the monument in Washington, D.C., will be available for viewing at any time day or night between now until its closing ceremonies Sunday at 3 p.m.
From the Dignity Memorial website:
The exhibit crisscrosses the country each year, allowing millions of visitors to see and touch the black, mirror-like surface inscribed with the names of more than 58,000 Americans who died or are missing in Vietnam. Honoring all U.S. veterans and dedicated to Vietnam veterans, the faux-granite replica is 240 feet long and eight feet high.
