Audubon, MN (WDAY TV) -- Friends and relatives of those lost in Vietnam have a chance to see their memorial right in their own community.

The Moving Wall, a replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., is in Audubon today through Monday. Two traveling walls give people across the county the opportunity to see the names listed on the memorial.

The Wind and Fire Motorcycle Club spent nearly two years bringing the wall to Audubon.

John Ronning, a member of the Wind and Fire Motorcycle Club, says, "we've had people here already, we barely got it set up, that are here making rubbings off the wall, loved ones and friends that were lost in Vietnam and their names are among the 58,272 names on this wall."

A grand opening ceremony is set for Saturday at 10 a.m.
