Legislation in the Oregon House would create a new statewide honor for soldiers who are killed of fatally wounded in the line of duty in Iraq or Afghanistan.  Jim Willis, Director of the Department of Veterans Affairs: “House Bill 2848 is just one more way that we can wrap our collective arms around these families during their time of loss.” The Bill would create a new medal. The name of the honor is still being debated to avoid confusion with other national honors. Right now, the medal is being called the “Oregon Legion of Merit Award.” It would be given to a soldier's next of kin.
