Central Point in Jackson County, Oregon — The American West (Northwest)
Oregon Fallen War Heroes Memorial
who shed their blood in defense of God, Family and Country.
They are Oregon's Fallen War Heroes.
We honor for their valor the men and women
whose names are engraved on these monuments.
They made the ultimate sacrifice.
They must never be forgotten.
We also honor the heroes who survived combat and returned home
with wounded bodies, hearts and minds--
many with pain hidden deep within their souls--
those unsung heroes who, by the grace of God, lived to fight another day.

Regarding Oregon Fallen War Heroes Memorial. This multi-war memorial dedicated in remembrance of every Oregon military service member killed in the line of duty since Oregon became a state in 1859. This war memorial was officially dedicated on November 11, 2015 and is comprised of separate monuments from each military branch of service as part of a circular memorial walk. There are also donated metal plaques embedded in the concrete paver walkway and a small gazebo as well. In the center of the memorial is an elevated bronze sculpture of two fighting eagles in flight. Flags of each branch of service surround the sculpture and war monuments to invoke an overall scene of patriotism.
