Vietnam Wall toppled by winds at De Soto
DE SOTO, Mo. (AP) -- Crews are working to reassemble a traveling Vietnam Wall that was toppled by strong winds over the weekend in De Soto.
Crews with the American Veterans Traveling Tribute have been touring the country since 1997. They said this was the first time the wall has been knocked down by wind.
The traveling wall is made of aluminum and steel. The wind bent several of the flat sections into curved arches.
Crews worked quickly to repair the damage, hammering the metal flat and trying to straighten the frames.
The wall's next stop is Giddings, Texas.
