Honoring Our Military Veterans Who Made The Ultimate Sacrifice

The 23rd Annual Memorial Celebration is scheduled for May 31st, 2021. The plan is to hold an in-person celebration while maintaining the flexibility to go virtual as needed during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The memorial is a tribute to the 120 military veteran's from Benton County who paid the supreme price for our freedom - giving their lives in combat. The Memorial is located on the lawn immediately south of the Corvallis National Guard building at 1100 NW Kings Blvd in Corvallis, Oregon.  It is open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A map is provided below.

The Memorial is a permanent structure with an "Out Grant" from the Federal Corps of Engineers.  With the Oregon Army National Guard and the Memorial sharing grounds, a wonderful partnership has developed between the National Guard and the Memorial.

 

We invite you to come by and quietly spend a few moments pondering the human cost of maintaining freedom.
