Traveling Vietnam memorial to return to Chehalis

CHEHALIS, Wash. (AP) -- The traveling Vietnam memorial will be returning to Chehalis later this month to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Vietnam War.

The Chronicle reports (http://is.gd/IJ1Oh1 ) the 370-foot wall will be set up outside the Veterans Memorial Museum in Chehalis from July 31 to Aug. 3.

The names of more than 58,000 people who died in Vietnam are etched into the wall, which is a replica of the memorial in Washington, D.C.
