Replica Vietnam wall memorial coming to Somerset

SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - Officials are hoping to gather photographs
of every Kentuckian whose name appears on the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial and are kicking off the effort Monday at a breakfast in
Somerset, where a traveling half-size replica of the memorial wall
will be on display all week.

The exhibition includes a traveling museum and information
center, which is equipped with a scanner so that visitors can bring
photos of their loved ones whose names are on the wall and have
them scanned.

The memorial will be in Somerset through Saturday. Local
organizers have activities planned each day at noon starting
Tuesday. Somerset is the only stop scheduled in Kentucky for the
memorial this year.

All activities are free and open to the public.
