Because there is no reason we can’t take a few minutes out of our day to remember.
This Oregon KWVA Memorial was dedicated on September 30, 2000. The memorial centerpiece is a 94 foot long Wall of Honor constructed of Carnelian granite. It contains the names of 287 Oregon servicemen killed in the Korean War. A 12 foot wide brick terrace made from bricks containing hundreds of names of memorial donors runs the length of the Wall of Honor. Flags of the United States, Republic of Korea, United Nations, and the State of Oregon are flown from 30 foot flag poles placed along the brick terrace.
The Oregon Korean War Memorial is located within a 5.5 acre Town Center Park in the city of Wilsonville, Oregon approximately 10 miles south of Portland off Interstate 5. Highway signs (KWVA Memorial) point to the location as you approach Wilsonville.
