About the Oregon Military Hall of Fame

Our goal is to bring this impressive event back. The last several years have been extremely challenging and we have not have the funds or resources to hold this event.

Oregon is one of just seven states that has a Military Hall of Fame, and Remembering America's Heroes is proud to sponsor this program. Oregon is, as our State Song proclaims, the Land of Heroes.

At Remembering America's Heroes, we honor men and women who, throughout our Nation's history, have chosen to serve their country in military uniform. Ordinary men and women have been defending this Nation for more than 200 years, performing an extraordinary duty without regard for hardship or sacrifice. That is what makes them the strength of the Nation.

Oregon is privileged to have individuals who have donned uniforms and taken up arms to defend our country that have performed this noble duty with extraordinary courage, bravery and character. Their stories are truly incredible, their feats are pure inspiration. That is why we have created an Oregon Military Hall of Fame, to recognize those who have distinguished themselves in ways that have brought honor not only their uniform, but to their Country and to the great State of Oregon.

The Hall of Fame can only recognize a fraction of those who deserve this honor. But all Veterans deserve our thanks. Most Veterans probably will tell you that serving their country was a privilege and no thanks or recognition is necessary. However, if you are inspired by the dedication, heroism and service shown by the members of the Oregon Military Hall of Fame, we encourage you to find two or three men or women who served, or are now serving in uniform, and tell them how grateful you are for their selfless service.
