Memorial Day 2008

(Click on images for larger view...) 

Each year, to honor the Oregonians who died in the Vietnam War as well as their other fallen comrades from the conflict, members of the 25th Infantry Division Association participate in Memorial Day ceremonies at the Oregon Vietnam War Memorial at Washington Park in Portland.

Vietnam vets hold US Flag, MIA flag, 25th Infantry Division flag and Regimental flags at the 1968-69 portal at the 2008 Memorial Day ceremonies. Veterans from the 1st Cavalry Division are just beyond the regimental flags. (That's me on the right with the American flag.)

25th Infantry Division vets carry a floral wreath in the shape of the Division's insignia to place at the MIA portal at the Memorial. (This year it was my honor to carry the wreath)
