Join the City of Lake Oswego as we partner with the LO Veterans Memorial to honor the fallen and commemorate the unveiling of the memorial at Foothills Park.  The monument celebrates the bravery and service of all U.S. military Veterans and First Responders with strong ties to the Lake Oswego community.  The event, which will be emceed by US Naval Captain Jonathan Puskas, features a keynote address from Taya Kyle.  Taya is the widow of late US Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, whose story was memorialized in the Academy Award winning film, American Sniper.  Her remarks focus on the trials and tribulations of love, war, faith and renewal.  The program also includes a flyover from the West Coast Ravens, a Presentation of Colors and 21 gun salute from the Lake Oswego Honor Guard, a wreath presentation from Gold Star Wives, an invocation from Father John Marshall, patriotic entertainment, and more.  Let us salute our heroes—for our tomorrow, they gave yesterday and today.
