Veterans Keep Watch Over Vietnam Memorial Overnight

Veterans keep watch overnight. Veterans keep watch overnight.

It's called the Wall That Heals, and it holds the names of the men and women who died serving our country in the Vietnam War. The traveling Vietnam Memorial is set up in Emmet Park along Bay Street in Savannah, and people are welcome to visit anytime day or night.

There will always be a veteran present to help you find a name on the wall.

Around 2am Friday morning, two Vietnam veterans were keeping close watch over the names of the more than 58,000 who lost their lives in the Vietnam War.

The traveling memorial will be in Emmet Park on Bay Street until Sunday evening.
