ABOUT REMEMBERING AMERICA’S HEROES
Under the leadership of Executive Director Ken Buckles, Remembering America’s Heroes (RAH) provides education to youth and the community so they can understand and appreciate the value of freedom and its cost. For the past twenty years, R.A.H. was originally known for Milwaukie High School’s Annual Living History Day, which for 15 years was the biggest and most comprehensive school program honoring Veterans in the United States. Since 2001 we have taken the Living History Day concept to 40 different schools in Oregon and consulted to many more all over the U.S. Living History Day includes speaker sessions, where Veterans speak to students in classrooms about their experiences; a luncheon hosted by the students: and the day culminates in the Assembly of Honor. Special recognition of our Veterans occurs during the assembly.
In addition, R.A.H. has produced “Tribute to Veterans Shows” at the Oregon State Fair, The Veterans Memorial Coliseum, The Rose Garden, and The Arlene Schnitzer Hall in Portland. R.A.H. is also the official host of the Oregon Military Hall of Fame in 2007, 2008, and 2009.
Please take a moment to look at the videos from past events. We hope they inspire you to join us at one of our many educational or tribute events. Want to learn more, volunteer, get involved, donate, or become a sponsor?
