Construction Starting on Oregon's World War Two Memorial in Salem

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.
