VIETNAM VETERANS TRAVELING THROUGH OREGON ON I-84 MAY NOTICE A NEW MEMORIAL DEDICATED TO THEM. 
 
YESTERDAY ON MEMORIAL DAY 370 MILES OF INTERSTATE 84 WAS DEDICATED AS THE "VIETNAM VETERANS MEMORIAL HIGHWAY."
 
BEND HEROES FOUNDATION PRESIDENT DICK TOBIASON SERVED TWO TOURS IN VIETNAM.  HE WAS AT YESTERDAY'S CEREMONY AT THE OREGON VETERANS HOME IN THE DALLES.
 
"FOR VIETNAM VETERANS THIS IS CLOSURE.  WE HAVE A LOT OF THESE VETERANS IN THE STATE - ABOUT 40 PERCENT OF THE OUR 320 THOUSAND VETERANS ARE FROM THE VIETNAM WAR- A LOT OF THEM ARE HAVING DIFFICULTIES IN DEALING WITH THE AFTERMATH OF THE WAR- PTSD, AGENT ORANGE IS HUGE  -AND SO THIS IS A BLESSING FOR THEM."
 
THREE OF 15 SIGNS HAVE NOW BEEN INSTALLED - THE REST WILL BE PLACED LATER THIS YEAR.  
 
"THIS IS A BLESSING, I CAN SEE IT IN THEIR EYES, WHEN WE PUT UP A SIGN (EARLIER THIS MONTH) AND THEY SAID THIS IS MARVELOUS, THANK YOU!" 
 
TOBIASON SAYS THEY NEED TO RAISE ABOUT 65 HUNDRED DOLLARS TO FINISH THE HIGHWAY MEMORIAL PROJECT.
