The public has an opportunity to view six historic military uniforms next week, which were worn by Oregonians who served our armed forces. This is part of a month-long celebration at the Oregon Lottery to celebrate Veterans Day and the 85 veterans who work at the state agency.

This display was put in the lobby at the Oregon Lottery to help celebrate the fact it is providing millions in funding to assist all 36 counties across the state fund their local County Veteran Services Offices.

The six uniforms on display were provided by VFW Marion Post 661 in Salem are from a collection of over 1,900 uniforms. The uniforms are from different branches and eras of the military service.

Lottery Director Barry Pack and Oregon Dept. of Veteran Affairs Kelly Fitzpatrick addressed Lottery staff Thursday, Nov. 7 in what has become an annual event at the Lottery to honor veterans.

“With nearly 20 percent of Lottery staff being veterans, recognizing their service is so important,” said Lottery Director Pack. “And with the passage of Measure 96 in 2016, Lottery proceeds now benefit Oregon veterans by solidifying and expanding veteran services.”

The Oregon Lottery’s Salem headquarters will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday next week and is located at 500 Airport Road SE in Salem.

Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned more than $12 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements, as well as Veteran Services and Outdoor School.
