CINCINNATI -- The names of 58,256 Americans killed in the Vietnam War are now on display at Union Terminal.
"The Wall The Heals" - one of the models of the Vietnam Memorial Wall traveling the country - is drawing Tri-Staters to the Museum Center parking lot in Queensgate this weekend to pay their respects.
This half-sized replica of the memorial in Washington, D.C., was created so that those who can't travel to the capital could still feel its impact.
Two Vietnam veterans came down from the Franklin VFW for Friday's opening ceremony.
"I think it is an honor to pay your respects to the people that lost their lives in war, and I think people appreciate it," said Jerry Chapman.
"It's an honor to stop and just realize all the names that are on that wall - that's a lot of people," said Owen Stewart. "That was a bad war not only here but over there, too."
An Iraq War veteran who lost his leg to a roadside bomb was there, too.
Brent "Hoss" Hendrix said he will soon undergo his 75th surgery at Water Reed Army Medical Center in Washington.
"Three weeks later I woke up at Walter Reed out of a drug-induced coma and since June 27, 2006, I've been off and on," said Hendrix. "I'm still at Walter Reed now, but I'm there as a medically retired soldier."
The wall will be here through Sunday along with a Huey helicopter and an exhibit of memorabilia and pieces that were left at the wall in D.C.
