Gov.-elect Phil Murphy and his family will be in Wildwood on Sunday to lay wreaths at the Vietnam Memorial Wall and kick off series of inaugural events that includes his swearing in Jan. 16.

Murphy, with his wife, Tammy, and their four children, will be at the wall at 9 a.m. Sunday, a spokesman said. The event is free and open to the public.

This will be the second visit to the wall by Murphy, who was there in the spring.

The Wildwoods’ Vietnam Veterans Remembrance Wall is a permanent, half-sized replica of the official memorial in Washington. It lists all 58,913 names of the soldiers who were killed during the war and includes blank panels to allow for additional names.
