BOWIE,TX(RNN Texoma) -

A traveling Vietnam wall replica is set up in Bowie.

It will be there throughout this weekend.

The wall is about 400 feet and has 58,000 names on it.

There will be people with laptops set up so that you can find the name of a loved one and trace over it with a pencil and a piece of paper.

"Since I served with these guys and just like the gentleman who just left, we find out that we were in the same place at the same time," said JR Vice Commander Gary Stephens. "And these are our heroes because they didn't make it back. This is called a wall of healing for us."

The travelling memorial will be there through Sunday. It is located at the Bowie VFW Post, 707 E. Nelson.
