Local veterans honored in ceremony

Eagle Point, Ore. — A Rogue Valley organization is honoring veterans whose remains haven’t been claimed by family.

On Thursday, the Old Guard Riders gathered at the Eagle Point National Cemetery for their quarterly ceremony.

The names of 29 Southern Oregon veterans were read.

The organization’s President Patrick Allen said it’s the least they can do for those who served our country.

“Whether they were in Vietnam, World War II, what service they’re in, we stand a flag line for them in respect for their service, and we are their temporary family,” Allen said.

Anyone is invited to attend a ceremony. For more information, click here.
