A very special memorial is coming to Susanville for the Independence Day weekend – the Global War on Terror Wall of Remembrance will come to town on today and be open at the Lassen County Fairgrounds 24 hours a day until noon on the 4th of July. The visit of the wall, which has traveled across the country, will be accompanied by a special #stop22tour concert at 7:00p.m., on Sunday, July 3rd at the Fairgrounds.
The wall is set to arrive in Susanville on this morning, along with a caravan of local law enforcement and Patriot Guard Riders.
Organizers now expect the wall to hit Susanville’s Main Street between 11:15 and 11:30a.m.
First the group will meet up at the Mark in Herlong at 10:30, from there the procession will head en masse to Susanville. Before heading to the fairgrounds the wall will head up out of town to the break-check area on Highway 36. After everyone lines up the wall will come back down through town along Main Street on its way to the fairgrounds. The wall will enter the fairgrounds at the Armory entrance on Russell Avenue.
The memorial will be open 24 hours a day at the fairgrounds beginning with opening ceremonies at 3:00 on Thursday.
