Vietnam memorial vault lowered

Elm Mott, TX

A memorial made after the Vietnam Wall came to Waco more than five years ago was finally lowered in the ground recently. A memorial service was held at American Legion Post 121 in Elm Mott.

Vietnam veteran and event organizer Bill Mahon describes how they came up with the vault idea.

"Folks would leave mementos, pictures, letters, notes, flowers, teddy bears. Each day we would collect them and would put them in this vault that was on site and we had promised that we would bury it with dignity somewhere in the community," said Mahon.
