A monument to soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice is on display in Cincinnati this weekend.

The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall is a 3/5-scale version of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The large version in the nation's capital is made from two black granite walls that are etched with more than 58,000 names of armed service members who were part of the Vietnam War. In contrast, the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall is about 300 feet long but features the same amount of names.

The memorial will be at Eden Chapel in Sayler Park through Monday, July 12, when it will go on hiatus before heading to New Hampshire in August.

The wall is overseen and escorted around the country by the Vietnam and All Veterans of Brevard in Melbourne, Florida.
