MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) - A replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is going on display in South Carolina.

The American Veterans Traveling Tribute Wall is going on display Thursday evening at the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant.

The tribute wall is an 80 percent scale model of the actual memorial wall in Washington. It is 360 feet long, 8 feet high and has the names of the more than 58,000 Americans who died in the war.

It will be on display around-the-clock through noon Sunday. There will be paper and pencils provided so visitors can make rubbings of the names on the wall.
