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."
