Take the Memorial Walking Tour
On the grounds on the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs building -- the north and east sides -- are several memorials honoring Oregon military veterans from as far back as the Spanish American War to current service members. From Summer Street a walking tour leads you through winding paths and lush landscaping starting at the Korean War Memorial and finishing at the World War I Doughboy.
These memorials are visited year round by veterans, their families and civilians alike. They remind us of the sacrifices of America’s veterans and that we must honor, remember and pay tribute to these brave men and women who have, and continue to fight for our freedoms and liberties.
There are also hundreds of veteran memorials across the state. Click here to view a list.
