A piece of history is coming to the Capital Region and if you've never seen the real thing in person, this event you shouldn't miss.

If you've never had a chance to see the Vietnam Memorial in person in Washington D.C., it's breathtaking. It's one thing to read stats and numbers but another to see the size of that wall and all of the names listed. All of the names of people who put their lives on the line to defend and fight for our freedoms.

If you've never seen the wall, it's coming to us. The Moving Wall is a half-size replica of the wall in Washington D.C. and has been touring the country for 30-plus years, according to their website.

News10 ABC is reporting that The Moving Wall will be making a stop in Altamont. The Moving Wall stopped in Tawasentha Park this morning and will be there through the weekend. Anyone has a chance to stop by and see the wall as well as reflect on the more than 58,000 names of missing or lost soldiers listed.

The Moving Wall is be featured as a part of the Hometown Heroes opening ceremony taking place this Saturday.
