The American Veterans Traveling Cost of Freedom Wall was set up Thursday at Ledbetter Park in Cutler.

The wall is 85-percent the size of the memorial in Washington, DC.

Organizers say the names of three men from the Cutler-Orosi area are on the wall.

"It was the whole community that came and pitched in. A lot of organizations and donations from the community. So it's really touching to myself and I'm sure to all the Vietnam veterans," Vietnam veteran Jacob Huerta said.

Organizers hope to bring the Traveling Freedom Wall back to the South Valley in 2013.
