Lawmakers in Salem are considering dedicating more of the state's highways to our veterans.

 

Representative John Huffman introduced legislation to make Highway 395 honor World War One veterans, Interstate 5 to honor Korean War veterans and U.S. Highway 101 to honor Afghanistan and Iraq veterans.

 

Veterans advocate Dick Tobiason testified in Salem in favor of the legislation.

 

"We, the Bend Heroes Foudnation is trying to speak for those vetearns who have no organization, like those who fought in World War One or in Afghanistan or Iraq.  The foundation is trying to honor all war veterans who served over the last 98 years and its a large group of 250,000 who served and about half are living in Oregon today."

 

The legislation will be considered by a House Committee this week and is expected to receive support from the House, Senate and Governor.

 

The state already has highways honoring World War TWo and Vietnam veterans.
