On Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11th, the City of Milwaukie in conjunction with American Legion Post 180 and the Daughters of the American Revolution will be dedicating a new black granite monument recognizing those residents of Clackamas County who were killed in the Vietnam War.  This is the capstone event of the three-year partnership to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War.

 

The obelisk monument is being made by local artist and veteran, Bruce Polone.  It will feature the names of all the residents of Clackamas County who were killed in the Vietnam War, and nearby will be two black granite benches to provide a place for quiet reflection.  Funding for the monument is secure, but the DAR and the Legion are seeking additional contributions to support the installation of the two new benches in Scott Park.

 

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution.  Make your check out to “American Legion Post 180” and either drop your check off or mail to American Legion Post 180, 2146 SE Monroe Street, Milwaukie OR  97222.  Please put the check in an envelope and mark it for the attention of Jerry Craig.
