PHOTOS: The Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall

Many gathered to pay tribute to those who fell during the Vietnam War.

 

Veterans, family and friends gathered to pay honor to those who fought in the Vietnam War.  The wall, which had been assembled earlier in the week, recognizes the thousands who died there.  Members of the Greater Danbury area, including Newtown, honored those who had given their lives for their country.

Warrant Officer Eric G. Blantin of Newtown, whose name is on the wall, was honored during the ceremony.

It's about time those guys get the recognition they deserve.

Thanks for the coverage and photos. I didn't know this was here, but am going to make an effort to get there this weekend before it leaves Danbury. I have been to the wall in DC and it's overwhelming.
