75th Anniversary of VJ Day and End of WWII
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of V-J (Victory over Japan) Day and the end of WWII on Sept. 2, 1945, Bend Heroes Foundation will honor local WWII Veterans who helped make those world changing events a reality by displaying their flags at Bend Heroes Memorial and on Veterans Memorial Bridge on Newport Ave. adjacent to the Memorial created by the Foundation and its partners 10 years ago. Thirty five (35) personalized flags having been previously flown over the U.S. Capitol will be displayed including those of 15 living WWII Veterans from Bend. We have notified the 15 veterans of the ceremony. Due to their age (mid 90s+) and health and the COVID-19 situation few could be expected to attend.
