About Lake Oswego Veterans Memorial
Our Mission is to partner with the City of Lake Oswego in the creation and development of a memorial for historic preservation of the service of all U.S. military veterans and first responders with strong association to Lake Oswego.
- Development of an artistic environment – to provide an inviting place to remember and reflect on service through an artistic setting for tributes; artistic beauty will be established through design of a featured granite wall, memorial benches, honor walls, and other artwark designed and developed in conjunction with the arts community of our city.
- Educational and community enrichment – to help educate students in schools, community organizations and the public about the service and heroism that ensures our security and liberty. The names and stories memorialized will help connect our community to its history and heritage and appreciation for its freedom.
- Identification/verification of the individuals who are eligible for recognition at the Lake Oswego Veterans Memorial in accordance with By-Laws of the organization – to ensure accuracy of the historic record that is visually portrayed at the memorial.
