FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - People are being encouraged to leave mementos when viewing the Traveling Vietnam Wall that will soon be displayed in Lexington.

The state Department of Veterans Affairs says mementos may end up in a collection at the Center for Kentucky History.

The Traveling Wall will be open to the public at the Kentucky Horse Park beginning at noon EDT on July 9.

The wall will be open to the public around the clock through 3 p.m. July 12.

Visitors are encouraged to leave photographs, flowers or other mementos to loved ones. Kentucky Historical Society staff will collect the mementos when the wall closes. They will determine which mementos are most appropriate for potential display and collection.

The Traveling Wall is an 80 percent scale model of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington, D.C.
