JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall is now set-up for the public near the Harley Davidson store in South Jackson.    

It's a scaled-down replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington. It lists all the names of more than 58,000 American men and women killed while serving in the Vietnam War. Setup has also begun for this weekend's Trail of Honor, featuring hundreds of volunteers demonstrating portions of every American war. Organizers say the displays will help you appreciate your freedom. 

"Freedom is not free. This is the price we pay for the freedoms we have in our country and it is important that the younger generations understand that," says Sergeant Major Michael Peusch. 

The memorial wall will be up through Monday. The Trail of Honor opens Saturday morning at 9 a.m.
