A half-scale replica of the Vietnam Wall is making its first-ever stop in Cincinnati.

The traveling "Wall that Heals" memorial is 250 feet long and includes a mobile museum.

Donny Ladd of West Chester spent 24 years in the Air Force, including two years in Vietnam.

"It's good that it's traveling around for the people who can't go and see it," he says. "If they can go see the one in Washington DC, it's better but this is certainly very helpful. It's a very healing wall."

Another airline is coming to CVG.  Allegiant says it will begin nonstop jet service from the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky international airport to the Orlando/Sanford and Ft. Meyers/Punta Gorda airports starting in February. 

Allegiant's Brian Davis says it aims to keep prices low and maybe encourage other airlines to drop rates as well.

"This is rated as one of the top highest fare communities in the country," says Davis. "This is historically within the top three. We believe that there's a huge opportunity for an airline like Allegiant to come in and drive down fares."
