Oregon Veterans Military Educational Display

“Preserving Our Heritage”


Picture 1 of 46

This display is NOT to glorify war…..

It is to educate the public as to the price of freedom.  To do this, we have had displays at:

  • The Oregon State Capitol
  • The Oregon State Fair
  • County Fairs
  • Churches
  • Colleges
  • High Schools
  • Middle Schools
  • National Military Veterans Conventions
  • State Military Veterans Conventions
  • Retirement Homes and Facilities

If you wish to support this educational display, the following options are available.

  1. Uniforms are needed from any period of time.  If you donate a uniform, please include a picture and military biography that we can put on the front of the uniform.
  2. Artifacts, news articles, pictures, posters, all of which can be displayed and/or framed.
  3. Monetary donations for the purpose of dry cleaning, and upkeep of the military items.
