When the Moving Wall, a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., comes to the Clayton County Fairgrounds in National June 30 through July 4, visitors will have an opportunity to honor and pay respects to the 58,307 servicemen and women whose names are inscribed upon it. Of those casualties of the Vietnam War, 867 were from Iowa, including nine from Clayton County. On panel 08w, line 26, one will find the name of Monona’s Louis Zittergruen, a private first class in the Army, who was killed in July 1970, at age 21.
Louie was the son of Marvin and Ariel Zittergruen and brother to Shirley Anderson (currently of Dallas, Texas), Sheryl Zittergruen (Monona) and Linda Monroe (Luana).
