Long Description:
In the memorial park on the north side of the Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs Building are a number of monuments. This one honors Oregon's thirteen recipients of the Medal of Honor.

The stone for the monument was cut from a step that once led to the Oregon Capitol building but was no longer needed as a result of the Capitol expansion project in 1975. The monument is a replica of the Oregon State monument found in the Medal of Honor Grove Freedom Foundation at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.
