22nd Annual Salute to American Veterans Rally

When: Fri., Aug. 15, 10 a.m., Sat., Aug. 16, 9 a.m. and Sun., Aug. 17, 9 a.m. 2014

Did you know there are multiple versions of the traveling Vietnam Memorial? According to Jim Wear, president of Pro-Promotions, the largest one — 80 percent of the scale of the Wall in Washington, D.C. — is managed by American Veterans Traveling Tribute. And that's the Wall that'll be part of the 22nd annual Salute to American Veterans Rally, organized by Wear's company, running through the weekend. The wall goes up Thursday at Cripple Creek High School; the rally itself begins in earnest Friday; and this morning brings the POW/MIA Recognition Ride (from Woodland Park High School to Cripple Creek), followed by a noontime remembrance ceremony, complete with fly-overs, in (and above) City Park. It's free; check theveteransrally.org for more. — Kirk Woundy
