(right) Job Corps workers and Vietnam veterans put the finishing touches on Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall in Lincoln Memorial Park on May 25, 2006. The traveling exhibit is a 3/4-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

(below, left) Hundreds of schoolchildren visited the wall for a hands-on history lesson. James Angus Watt, a third-grader at Kelso Elementary School in Boring, Ore., makes a rubbing of the name he was given to find.

(below, right) Veterans from around the region came to visit the wall as well, to remember their fellow servicemen. Larry Bush served as a combat medic in Vietnam in 1969 and 1970.
