LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The American Veterans Tribute set up The Traveling Wall in Thursday in Lufkin at the V.F.W. post on 1800 Ford Chapel Road.
The wall is in remembrance of those that lost their lives fighting for our country. It took several hours to assemble the 370 foot wall. It is 80 percent the size of the memorial in Washington. However, it includes all of the same names. Veterans came by to pay tribute to their fellow soldiers and friends.
"It has a special meaning to me because I lost a lot of friends there. A lot of guys that I was with," said Vietnam Veteran Kenneth James.
