The Vietnam War has come to signify a tumultuous time in our Nation’s history. The 1960s endured political assassinations, racial tensions, political protests, and a war in Southeast Asia that dominated headlines as America’s involvement escalated. By the end, more than 58,000 (58,200) Americans died and 300,000 were wounded. Many are still missing. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC pays tribute to those who fought in the Vietnam War and were killed or are missing in action. A traveling version of “The Wall” will be in Mifflin County later this week. The Memorial will be on display Thursday, August 8th thru Sunday, August 11th at the Reedsville playground on Honeycreek Road. The Memorial is sponsored by AVTT (American Veterans Traveling Tribute) from Texas.
Area roadwork continues this week. In Mifflin County, Granville Township will close Middle Road just east of Lockport Road today. The road will be closed to all traffic thru Friday afternoon. Motorists are advised to find an alternate route.
