Perfect weather for the groundbreaking of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Veterans Park in Tupelo. Veterans from across the region attended.
The Wall is going to be possible because of cooperation between private and public money. City, County, and State money was combined with $250,000 of private capital that was donated for the project.
“I believe the Wall will become a focal point of Veterans Park and will attract thousands of visitors to Tupelo / Lee County. It will serve as a regional reminder of the men and women who have sacrificed so much for this nation.”
