American Veterans Traveling Tribute Visit Clinton County

The American Veterans Traveling Tribute came to Clinton County as part of the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States and the areas Hometown Hero veterans celebration.

In his remarks during opening ceremonies, Senator Wozniak told a large gathering, If this Wall doesnt move you, you dont belong in the United States. With this Wall, we pay homage to those who gave their lives. One small but powerful gesture we can do for them is, on our nations holidays, fly the flag so those who have fallen can look down on us and know that well never forget.

Senator John Wozniak (right side) and Rep. Mike Hanna lay down a yellow rose of remembrance in front of the traveling Wall, a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and one of several displays featured as part of the Tribute.
