The Wyandot County Vietnam Traveling Wall Foundation is proud to announce its plans to place a second monument (pictured above) in Bi-centennial Park in Upper Sandusky. This monument will be dedicated to the memory of Wyandot Countyís veterans of the Korean War. To raise funds for the acquisition and placement of this new monument the Vietnam Traveling Wall Foundation is currently planning a 2-day event for this summer to be held on Saturday July 26th and Sunday July 27th.

Activities will be held at Thielís Wheels in Upper Sandusky. Owner Marc Ingwersen and Marketing Director Breann Fredritz are helping with the planning. The activities will kick-off at 9:00 AM on Saturday July 26th with Opening Ceremonies and the Posting of the Colors.
Participants and activities throughout the 2-day event include the Ohio Motor Pool, all branches of the military, various concessions, and raffles for both a Henry 22 Cal. Lever Action Golden Boy Rifle and an Olympus Digital Camera. (Tickets for these items are on sale now.) Also the Chained Eagles will be bringing in their Ohio Wall and will hold a Tribute to MIAís at 3:00 PM on both days of the event. The Iraq Freedom Wall will also be on location. Sunday, July 27, a motorcycle ride, with registration beginning at 9:00 AM, will leave Thielís at 10:30 AM and return by 2:30 PM prior to the Chained Eagles program and the closing program. Throughout the event the National Guard, Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy and Coast Guard will be bringing in various displays that you wonít want to miss.
