Menasha, WI -- A Vietnam veteran in Menasha is honoring his fallen comrades with a memorial wall in his front yard. Steve Conto created a replica of the Vietnam Wall that's in Washington, D.C. He says so many people lost their lives in the war and he wants those living here to be able to pay tribute to soldiers from Winnebago, Outagamie and Calumet counties.
"These are our boys, our sons, our brothers you know, and our fathers that we lost right here. And this is just a fraction of all those that are on the wall in D.C., but this kind of brings it to home. These are our boys," said Conto.
Conto says his wall is always open to the public. He hopes to expand it in the future with even more names.
