The Vietnam Veterans of America Umpqua Valley Chapter 805 is bringing the Oregon Memorial Traveling Wall to Tillamook on May 26 and 27, at the beginning of Memorial Day weekend. This wall is a tribute to 957 Oregon veterans who lost their lives while serving their country, including the hundreds who died during the Vietnam War and others in later military actions.
The Oregon Memorial Traveling Wall is modeled after the Vietnam Veteran Memorial in Washington, D.C., with the names of the fallen inscribed upon it. It is a powerful reminder of the sacrifices made by these courageous individuals in service to their country and serves as a way to honor and remember them.
The wall will enter Tillamook from the south with an honorary police escort at around 9 a.m. May 26 and arrive at Second Street Plaza, where it will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. The Tillamook Revitalization Association is sponsoring the event.
This is not just an opportunity to honor the fallen, but also a chance to show support and gratitude for those who have served and continue to serve. The Oregon Memorial Traveling Wall stands as a reminder of the bravery and selflessness displayed by those in uniform.
