Tribute to fallen soldiers makes its way to LI

The Vietnam Moving Wall arrived at Greis Veterans Memorial Park in Lynbrook yesterday.

Officials say the wall is a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in D.C. and travels around the nation. The wall, which is half the size of the D.C. memorial, has been on a tour of all 50 states since 1984.

Some veterans who visited the wall today say it's important to them to pay their respects to fallen comrades.

It will be on display until Sunday.
