ENID, Okla. (AP) - A retired soldier who spent more than five years as a prisoner of war will dedicate a wall commemorating Vietnam veterans.
Col. Lee Ellis will deliver a speech Monday at the dedication of the Vietnam Memorial Wall at Enid's Woodring Regional Airport. Ellis was a former Vietnam prisoner of war with Arizona Sen. John McCain.
The wall is a smaller replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington.
The dedication ceremony will include a 21-gun salute by the Silver Talon Honor Guard from Vance Air Force Base and a flyover of Vietnam-era aircraft.
