Vietnam Wall Replica Escorted By Hundreds



The Western Kentucky State Fair Board, the VFW Post 1913, and the Eagles Riders Club want to connect area residents with the heritage and heroics memorialized in Washington, DC, with a display of the Vietnam Memorial Wall. Fair Board member, Tim Henderson says the display of the Wall has been three years in the making.


   
The Wall, an exact replica of the monument, was met by nearly two hundred motorcycles in Oak Grove Wednesday afternoon, and organizers could not have been more happy.


   
The bikers, who were members of the Eagles Riders, the American Legion Riders, the Iron Order, the Legacy Vets, and other veterans from the area, led the Honor Guard procession up Fort Campbell Boulevard, to Eagle Way Bypass, and down Canton Pike to the Fairgrounds. One Vietnam veteran stated that many people don't think about the fact that the Wall is their only connection to the buddies they lost in the war.  Click here to see pictures.

The Christian County Sheriff's Department, Hopkinsville Police Department and Christian County Constables helped escort and stop traffic for the procession.
