PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial will be on display in Provo until Monday.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Moving Wall is on display at North Park, 500 N. 500 West.

Several dignitaries and veterans attended opening ceremonies for the wall yesterday.

Isaac Hao III served says he served in Vietnam in a medical capacity. He says his cousin Joseph Hao was killed and yesterday was the first time he has visited any Vietnam memorial.

Volunteers will be on hand at the replica to answer questions and help find names.

Former Sen. Jake Garn is scheduled to speak at the closing ceremony Monday at 10 a.m.
