PINE BELT (WDAM) -

A memorial to all veterans of the Vietnam war is on the move. 

The Traveling Wall, as it’s known, made its way from Lucedale to Jackson this morning.  

In the video, it shows the travelers passing through Collins along Highway 49.

It was captured by viewer John Lynes as the caravan of motorcycles lead and followed the wall to the capitol city.

The wall is replica the of Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. that bears the names of the thousands servicemen who died during the war.

It will be on display in Jackson until next Tuesday.
