WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Veterans and others are being sought for a solemn mission this weekend in Waterloo: standing vigil at the Vietnam veterans memorial.

Black County Supervisor Craig White is a Vietnam vet, and he told the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (https://bit.ly/1F1yFoR ) the 45 hours are “pretty well covered, but any vet that wants to show up is more than welcome.”

Police will be patrolling the site regularly.

The tradition of a vigil started after the county memorial at Paramount Park was dedicated in 1986. It continued into the early 2000s but has not been done for several years.

The vigil is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. Friday and extend through noon Sunday.
