Program Details | Directions

Flagpole Park Memorial Day flag raising ceremony outside U.S. Post Office in Warrenton.
The flag raising ceremony occurs within a now fully landscaped grassy area outside the post office that features a 7-foot, 2-inch bronze statue — with a 6-foot base — of a Vietnam War soldier dressed in full uniform with rifle in hand. This statue, designed and constructed by a Coast Guard veteran in Seaside Oregon, was made possible through nearly three decades of civic efforts in the Warrenton area, culminating in the award of a grant from the state Parks and Recreation Department.
