SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- This Veterans Day weekend, a group of Vietnam veterans will spend hours assembling and taking down their traveling memorial wall.

Members of the non-profit ministry group, Point Man Antelope Valley, say it's a tribute to their friends who never made it home from war.

Viewers can watch the wall being assembled from all angles through a 360-degree video experience. Use your mouse to navigate the video clips below in all directions.

The wall is a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.

Inscribed on it are the names of 58,318 people.

Organizers say it took years to raise $102,000 to fabricate the wall. The veterans say it's their duty to share it with the rest of the world.

"Even if you have no friends or relatives on this wall, and you walk up and you see all these names, it affects you, it will get to you," said Michael Bertell, President of the AV Mobile Wall.

Donations are used to maintain, store and travel The Wall.

You can also keep up with the wall's travels on the group's Facebook page.
