The traveling Vietnam memorial will remain open and on display at VA Butler Healthcare through Sunday.

The Butler County American Legion Riders were behind the effort to bring the American Veterans Traveling Tribute to Butler. The traveling memorial is an 80 percent replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., which contains the names of the over 58,000 men and women who were killed in the Vietnam War.

The memorial is open 24-hours-a-day. There will be various ceremonies held at different times throughout the days.
