Hundreds of people gathered on the south lawn of Packard Music Hall for the opening ceremony of The Wall that Heals.

It is a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Valley residents who lost a loved one in the Vietnam War, those who just wanted to honor those who died, veterans, state lawmakers, city council members and Warren's mayor made up the large crowd.

 The display and education center will be open 24 hours a day and is free to the public.

The wall honors the more than three million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces during the Vietnam War.

More than 58,000 names of men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam are printed on the wall.

The impressive 375-foot display stands seven and a half feet tall at its highest point.

There is also a Mobile Education Center display on-site.

The free attraction is open through Sunday.

The closing ceremony will take place at noon on Sunday with the Laying of the Roses and recognition of POW/MIA and Gold Star Families.
