Hundreds of bikers came out to see traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall in Stuart

STUART, Fla. - Hundreds of bikers gathered at the Port St. Lucie civic center to escort the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall to its' temporary home in Stuart.

The wall is based in Melbourne and goes around the country most of the year.

It's made up of dozens of panels that contain the names of those who lost their lives in the conflict.

It will take crews about four and a half hours to assemble.

"It offers the opportunity for people who can't get to the wall in DC for financial or health reasons, it gives them a chance to see the wall," said Greg Welsh of the Vietnam and All Veterans of Brevard.

The bikers were joined by law enforcement for the ride down to Halpatiokee Park in Stuart off Kanner Highway.

The wall opens to the public tomorrow morning at 9 a.m.

There is no charge to see it, but donations are accepted.

It will be on display through Sunday.
