Our Vision: A Vietnam War Memorial on the Oregon State Capitol Grounds
The era of the Vietnam War was a tumultuous period.
Almost 3 million United States Military personnel served in Vietnam over time.
58,318 died there.
710 Oregonians were among the Killed In Action.
Four Oregon families lost two sons in Vietnam.
There were military personnel Missing in Action.
There were Prisoners of War.
Most of the Vietnam Warriors who came back to the U.S. were never welcomed home. Many were spit upon, ridiculed and attacked for honoring the call of their nation.
For these reasons and many more, we wish to honor all who served during the Vietnam Era. Especially, those who served in Vietnam. In addition, we wish to memorialize those who gave their life, forfeiting their American Dream so that we can live ours.
It is appropriate that this memorial be placed on the grounds of the Oregon State Capitol. This will enable our state residents to understand the struggles of the Vietnam Veterans and perpetuate the history and the memory of the Vietnam War for generations to come.
This fund is a charitable organization with the expressed purpose to generate funds through cash and in-kind donations for the design and construction of a Vietnam War Memorial on the Oregon State Capitol Grounds that will provide educational opportunities for future generations.
