DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Officials say around 4,000 motorcyclists are expected to escort a traveling Vietnam War memorial in Dayton.
The Dayton Daily News reports that some roads will be closed as the bikers ride in a parade with the American Veterans Traveling Tribute Vietnam Memorial Wall on Wednesday afternoon.
The 380-foot replica of the Washington memorial wall will be on display at the Greene County Fairgrounds through Sunday.
The five-day tribute also includes elements honoring veterans of the Korean War, the Gulf War, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as fire and police personnel lost in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Authorities say a 52-year-old man died when he fell from a cliff while rappelling in Ohio over the weekend.
Any time a starting pitcher steps into the batter's box before he stands on the mound, he's in pretty good shape. Mike Leake enjoyed that luxury Tuesday night.
