Honoring Our Veterans

November 7, 2018

This morning, Council honored our veterans and the women and men currently serving in the United States military.

This Veterans Day is especially significant because it marks the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, the end of World War I.

On November 11th – and indeed every day – we thank and celebrate our veterans and their families for their service and sacrifices.

On Monday, November 12th, we urge community members to join the City’s Veterans Empowerment Team and many other Portlanders at the 44th Annual Ross Hollywood Chapel Veterans Day Parade. The parade will start at 9:30am at NE 40th and Tillamook.

We also invite you to stop by the City Hall Atrium and explore a historical display and videos sharing the stories of veterans who work for the City of Portland.
