Honoring the service and sacrifice of over 5,000 Veterans!

From the pristine rocky shores of the Oregon Coast, to the lush evergreen forests of Eastern and Southern Oregon, the Veterans of Oregon Honorable Service Medal has provided recognition and appreciation for veterans throughout the state. This extraordinary vision began with a goal in mind to reach and touch every single veteran, honoring the service and sacrifice made for our country. To say this program has been successful is made evident by the fact that we have now reached the 5,000 mark of minting!
