A traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial will be on display in Malden in June, according to an announcement from the city.

"The Moving Wall," a half-size replica of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., includes the names of more than 58,000 men and women who died or are listed as missing in action. Among those, 1,546 are from Massachusetts, and 18 from Malden.

It will be on display in Forest Dale Cemetery from June 7 to 9, according to an announcement from the city. Malden is one of two Massachusetts municipalities scheduled to host the wall this year; the other being Medway.
