'Vietnam Wall' As It Passes Through Town

Published: 5:01 PM, 06/02/2009

Approximately 500 motorcyclists served as escorts on Tuesday afternoon as a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall passed through Greeneville on its way to Johnson City. Citizens and well-wishers lined the route along both sides of Andrew Johnson Highway, holding American flags, waving and displaying placards and banners showing their respect. This photo shows a Greeneville firetruck, at left, with Old Glory displayed from atop its extended ladder at the moment the truck carrying the Wall replica passes.
