A traveling version of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall will make a trip to Orange County this week.

It's offering residents an opportunity to pay their respects to those who served and lost their lives in the war.

It stands at 375 feet long and is up to 7 1/2 feet high.

The Wall That Heals is a three-quarter scale replicate of the original wall in Washington, D.C.

The traveling version and the original are both engraved with the names of more than 58,000 service members who passed during the war.

The Wall That Heals will be situated in Costa Mesa’s Balearic Park.

Visitors will be allowed to view it any time of day or night Thursday, April 11 through Sunday, April 14.

More than 300 service members who died during the war came from Orange County, according to National Archives.
