VIETNAM WAR VETERANS MEMORIAL RE-DEDICATION CEREMONY
Beaverton, OR – June 9th at 1:00pm – 2:00pm
American Legion post #124 will be holding an official Beaverton Vietnam War Veterans Memorial Re-Dedication ceremony at the Veterans Memorial Park on Hall Blvd in Beaverton.
The Veterans Memorial honors Corporal Richard A. Jannigan, who was killed while serving in the Vietnam War. The memorial lists the names of all the Oregonians who died in the Vietnam War and those who were listed as missing in action. The Vietnam War was an especially unpopular “conflict” and those who served in the Vietnam War era returned home often unappreciated. This Memorial displays respect and honor for those Who Gave Their All and for those men and women who served their Country with honor.
The memorial was on display from 1968 to the fall of 2015 at the Beaverton Elks Lodge (located at 3500 SW 104th). The Veterans Memorial was removed from the Beaverton Elks building due to the sale and repurposing of the facility. Once LCD was made aware of the sale of the building, they jumped at the opportunity to assist with the relocation of the memorial to preserve the memory of all of the fallen soldiers that served in Vietnam.
LCD, along with its subcontractors, Concrete Structures, 3CM Stone & Lightworks Electric are very proud to be associated with such a noble project to preserve the memorial for many years to come.
The overall cost for this project could have been $123,440.00 without all of the donations of time, materials and equipment received from our suppliers and subcontractors along with LCD’s contributions which cut the overall project in half to $ 61,084.00.
Please join us at this great event on Thursday, June 9th at 1pm with many dignitaries including Mayor Denny Doyle, federal & local officials & various veteran organizations.
