DENVER, Colorado – Memorial Day is an opportunity to honor those who have served and sacrificed for their country. In Colorado, there are many ways to commemorate this important holiday.
One of the most popular ways to pay tribute to our veterans is to visit the Vietnam Veterans Wall. This wall is a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC and will be on display at Veterans Plaza in Fort Collins from May 25-29.
It contains the names of more than 58,000 Americans who lost their lives or were missing in action during the Vietnam War. The door to the wall is free and will be available 24 hours a day.
Besides visiting the wall, there are other ways to honor our veterans on Memorial Day. You can learn about the sacrifices made by our veterans at a ceremony in Colorado.
