Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

August 30, 2014
Parkersburg News and Sentinel

UP: To the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall, a 3/5 scale of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., on display at City Park. The Traveling Wall, making its second appearance in Parkersburg, lists the names of the more than 58,000 servicemen who died in the war including many from the Mid-Ohio Valley. The Wall will be here through Monday and will include a special non-denominational ecumenical church service at 4 p.m. Sunday. In addition, a thumbs up to the more than 70 volunteers including members of the West Virginia Army National Guard 1092nd Engineer Battalion and the Parkersburg High, Parkersburg South, Parkersburg Catholic and Williamstown High School football teams who spent much of Wednesday helping to set up the wall.
