Thursday in Salem, lawmakers, some youth from Central Oregon and others gathered for Armed Forces Day. . “The Oregon National Guard is out in force. We had an F-15 flyover, over the Capitol, and there were, I don’t know how many howitzers in the park across the street firing.” State Representative Jason Conger of Bend says it was a touching moment in Salem as they honored our military during Armed Forces Day. “I don’t know about you, but I always…I’m a bit sentimental, I will admit and every time I see a flyover, especially when they do a missing wingman formation, I always get tears in my eyes.” Conger says another favorite part of the event was interacting with members of the Oregon Youth Challenge who also came to Salem for the ceremony.
