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.
