HAYDEN, Idaho -- A pair of memorials honoring fallen soldiers made their way to North Idaho on Wednesday.
The memorials arrived in Hayden after a major escort from both law enforcement officers and war veterans. The memorials displayed the names of nearly 70,000 fallen services members by the time the walls are set up on Friday.
"To me, that means that any Vietnam veteran or any veteran of that era, we'll never forget those that gave their lives for us or those that are still giving their lives for us," said Vietnam veteran Wayne Syth.
The Patriot Guard was also in attendance.
"To have support to ride down the freeway, and see flags hanging over, it just gets you here," said Pam Moist, a Patriot Guard Rider. "We're always wearing sunglasses. We're crying behind those. There's tears for that fallen soldier whether we knew them or not."
One of the memorials is a half-sized replica of the Vietnam Wall in Washington, D.C. and the other is a wall containing the names of those who have died in the War on Terror.
Both of the walls will be on display Friday, August 16 until Sunday, August 18.
