(June 30, 2002, additional photos posted July 1) -- The travelling Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, a half scale replica of the Washington, D.C. memorial, has arrived in Houghton Park in NLB (Atlantic Ave. and Harding St.). It will remain on display 24/7 through July 7.
The photos convey what words cannot. We post them with deep respect.
Franz G. Prediger, Long Beach, CA, born July 1946, killed June 30, 1966.
A tent near The Wall houses an information area with computers letting visitors check for specific names and data.
Dan Pressburg is among those attending at the site.
