Choctaw Indians gathered Thursday at the moving wall in front of Bonita Lakes Mall.
Members came to honor members of the tribe who had fought and died in the war. They also said a prayer for the thousands of others whose lives were lost.
"Many of our boys were in Vietnam and it's important that we have this freedom and to honor those that fought," said the Rev. Eugene Tubby, a member of the Choctaw Indian tribe.
The moving Vietnam Wall spent a week in Meridian at Bonita Lakes Mall. It leaves at midnight Friday for its next destination.
