Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown today ordered flags lowered to half-staff in honor of Memorial Day on Monday, May 25, 2020 until noon. Oregonians are asked to observe the National Moment of Remembrance beginning at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day. President Trump proclaimed May 25, 2020, as a day of Prayer for Peace, Memorial Day and designated the hour beginning in each locality at 11:00 a.m. as a time when people might unite in prayer for permanent peace.
"Memorial Day is a time for us to reflect on the contributions and sacrifices of the people who serve and protect our nation,” said Governor Brown. "We remember the fallen. We remember their courage and tenacity. We remember their dedication and determination, their service and sacrifice. Together, we resolve to remember those who have given their lives in the name of peace and freedom. We honor and remember our veterans, fallen heroes, military members, and their families all across Oregon."
