WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund unveiled a new traveling museum on Monday to accompany "The Wall That Heals" -- a half-sized replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington that has traveled the country since October 1996. The museum -- built into the side panels of the truck trailer than carries the wall replica -- includes the stories of Vietnam veterans such as Sen. Charles Robb and John McCain, Federal Express CEO and founder Fred Smith, and former Pittsburgh Steelers superstar Rocky Bleier. The exhibit also displays memorabilia left by visitors at the Wall in Washington or the traveling wall, and memorabilia from peace demonstrations during the war.
