The American Veterans Traveling Tribute and Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall will be exhibited Nov. 8-11 at the Tropicana Laughlin and will be available for viewing 24 hours a day in the hotel's north parking lot.
The public is invited to view the wall free of charge and make rubbings of the names of their fallen loved ones.
The Traveling Wall is a 370-foot-long replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. The 80 percent scale reproduction, which stands 8 feet tall, at its apex, contains all 53,253 names as inscribed on the original wall.
There will be donation boxes available for Operation Gratitude (www.operationgratitude.com), which annually sends more than 100,000 care packages filled with snacks, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation addressed to U.S. service members deployed in hostile regions.
The Tropicana is located at 2121 S. Casino Dr. in Laughlin, Nev.
