It will be located at the state capitol at the corner of Cottage and State Streets.
Veterans advocate Dick Tobiason says Oreogn was one of six states without a memorial --but no more.
"So, Oregon finally is going to dedicate (a memoiral) to the 156-thousand veterans in World War Two -- almost 70 years after D Day and 69 years after the end of World War Two. Most of the World War Two veterans are gone. Oregon had 156-thousand, but its now down to 28 thousand."
The memorial is expected to be completed by June 6th -- the 70th anniversary of D-Day.
The World War Two Memorial Foundation raised the more than one million dollars to build the memorial.
