SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall will stop in southeast South Dakota next month.

The American Veterans Traveling Tribute Traveling Wall will be at the Sanford Pentagon Sports Complex in Sioux Falls Aug. 5.

The traveling wall is a scaled-down version of the memorial in Washington, D.C., that has the names of more than 58,000 Americans who died or are missing in Vietnam.

The replica also includes all the names as the original. It was completed in 1988 and tours the nation each year, making multiple stops across the nation.
