Veterans from wars ranging from WW II to Vietnam, as well as the country’s brave first responders, will be honored when the American Veterans Traveling Tribute will be on display at Fort Bridger State Historic Site from September 27-30.

Made possible through the efforts of the Uinta County Veterans Board, the American Veterans Traveling Tribute, known as “The Wall,” features a variety of information regarding conflicts American veterans have been involved in.

Included in the display are a series of panels portraying the WW II timeline of events. A Korean War tribute featuring battle maps, photos and timeline. An 80 percent scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C., will also be on display.

Also included are panels honoring Law Enforcement and Firefighters including a 9/11 tribute with the names of all 2,984 casualties.

The entrance fee to Fort Bridger State Historic Sites has been waived while “The Wall” is on display.
