With hopes of celebrating Veteran’s Day around a brand new tribute to Clackamas County heroes, Boring’s Committee on Memorials and Remembrance, Friends of Boring Station Trailhead Park and the Boring, Oregon Foundation are hard at work to gain county approval and the needed funds for a Vietnam memorial in their town.

“The Vietnam War was my generation’s war,” Steve Bates, Boring resident and chair of the committee says. Though he did not fight in Vietnam, he wants to commemorate those who did.
