"He was an outstanding leader, a good tactician loved by his men. He was not an armchair general. So we remember," said Ladd, a Haverhill selectman and New Hampshire state representative.
The replica wall also drew a large number of visitors from Vermont, including Gayle Rogers of Newbury, who was with Margaret Shields of Groton.
"It's hard to comprehend all these names," Rogers said, as she viewed the memorial to the 58,000 Americans who died as a result of the Vietnam War.
