Memorial wall honors victims of global war on terror

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A traveling memorial that honors the men and women killed by the global war on terror has made a stop in Nashville.

The wall is engraved with more than 11,000 names, and spans the conflicts from Desert Shield and Desert Storm to 9/11 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The memorial was escorted to downtown Nashville by a group of Patriot Guard riders.

A ceremony at the wall, which is placed near the Cumberland River at the end of Lower Broadway, included a wreath-laying and candlelight vigil Thursday evening.

The wall will be on display at Riverfront Park until Sunday.
