Governor Kulongoski has issued a proclamation stating that next week to be Veteran's Awareness Week. It is a week to honor and remember those veterans both living and dead who have sacrificed so much for our country. Veterans advocate Dick Tobiason says its a great signal to us that the state wants to honor military members, especially world war two vets: "We're losing some of them. Actually our population in Oregon is declining, as it is across the country, the veteran's population that is.   About somewhere close to 25,000 to 30,000 of World War II veterans. And we're losing those. And I don't know if the public really is aware that the greatest generation is will have disappeared probably in less than 10 years from now, we'll have very few of them."  Tobiason says it really means a lot when people thanks the veterans for their service and that it took a long time for the government to recognize the veterans of many wars. He’s encouraging everyone to come out for the Veterans Day parade on Thursday, November 11th at 11 a-m in downtown Bend.
