The Vietnam Veterans of Oregon Memorial, near Hoyt Arboretum at jct. S.W. Kingston Ave. and S.W. Knights Blvd., encompasses 3.25 acres and is dedicated to the Oregonians who served in the Vietnam War. A spiral path leads up from a manicured bowl of grass, plants and shrubs to the towering trees encircling the memorial. Year-specific monuments along the path relate state history as well as the names of those who perished or were reported as missing in action.
