Thursday’s rain couldn’t keep Oklahomans from remembering the soldiers lost in Vietnam.

The "Moving Wall", a smaller version of Washington DC’s Vietnam Veteran's Memorial made a stop in Green Country. The location, the Creek Nation Complex in Okmulgee.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars sponsored a ceremony Thursday to honor all the soldiers whose names line the walls. Norma Glover was there to remember her son. "He was there because he believed in it. He thought he was there for a good reason."

The wall will be on display at the Creek Nation Complex through the June 18th.
