Vietnam wall replica will be dedicated at Siouxland Freedom Park

Posted:

Fresh off the Memorial Day holiday, officials will dedicate a half-scale black granite Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall at the Siouxland Freedom Park.

The ceremony is Wednesday at 5:00 PM at the park in South Sioux City, Nebraska. They'll

also dedicate the newly-installed, 150-foot tall flagpole, which will fly a 30-by-60 foot American flag.

The black granite wall is believed to be the only replica that duplicates the design of the memorial in Washington.

The granite came from the same quarry in India.
