A group of veterans in Fall River are planning a permanent memorial to those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in Vietnam. The veterans are raising money to construct an 80% scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. The 360-foot-long wall would be located in Fall River's Bicentennial Park. Organizer Justin Latini joins Jim Phillips on this week's Townsquare Sunday to talk about the project, and plans for a fundraiser on Sunday, September 9 at Bristol Community College.
