Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall replica on display in Niles

An 80 percent scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. is now on display at Niles High School.

The replica wall and the Through the Eyes exhibit will be on display through Sunday.

"You miss them, you know when you think about it.  You just want to remember them.  That's why I'm here.  That's why I came to volunteer my time here, to help them out.  As far as letting the people come here and honor these names on this wall," said Brian Gooding, a Vietnam veteran.
