Highway 26 in Boring to be dedicated as a Fallen Hero Memorial Highway

On Friday, May 27th at Good Shepherd Community Church in Boring, the public is invited to join with community members and veterans to start the Memorial Day Weekend with a ceremony to honor the sacrifice of Marine Private George Nathan Wright and his brother, Army Specialist 4 James Alfred Wright.

The brothers both succumbed to hostile enemy fire in Vietnam in 1967 and 1969. Only 41 families nationwide lost two sons in Vietnam. This number includes the Wright family of Boring and two other families in Oregon.

The father of the Wright Brothers is Boring resident, George Wright, a 92 year old World War II Navy Veteran.

In conjunction with the Boring, Oregon Foundation, the Vietnam Veterans of America, the Boring Community Planning Organization and the 2016 Oregon State Legislature, the Oregon Department of Transportation will install Fallen Hero Memorial Highway signs on Highway 26 as it passes through Boring to honor the brothers. The eastbound side will be dedicated to Marine Private George Nathan Wright and the westbound side will be dedicated to Army SPC4 James Alfred Wright.

The service will start at 1:30 pm. Presentations are expected from the Vietnam Veterans of America, Oregon State Senators Laurie Monnes-Anderson and Alan Olsen. Congressman Earl Blumenauer's office has confirmed that he will attend and participate in the dedication. Other special guests have been invited to participate. Planning of the ceremony includes members of the Gresham and Sandy Posts of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The signs will be installed upon adjournment of the gathering.
