There's a statewide effort underway to raise 1.2 million dollars for a special world war 2 memorial, which would be built in Salem. State Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver says the campaign kicked off recently - and they have already have an idea of what the memorial would look like.

 

"They actually had some stones right in front of the Capital - it looks nice- simple and nice- and I think with this generation we need to do it pretty fast cause that generation is leaving us every day."


Whisnant says most of the effort is being done through private funding, but the state is being asked to pitch in 250 thousand dollars for the memorial.
