On May 28th, The Benton County Veterans Memorial will be hosting a service in Corvallis to honor our local fallen veterans and their families. The service will he held at the Corvallis National Guard Armory at 1100 NW Kings Blvd.
Recently students volunteers from Corvallis High School planted almost two thousand flowers at the memorial.
The memorial service will include music, refreshments, special speakers, a 21 gun salute and a F-15 fly over that children are sure to enjoy. We suggest arriving before 2 PM as the flyover is scheduled for 2:10 PM. Also the names of 190 local area veterans who have given the ultimate sacrifice will be read.
