PMG FILE PHOTO - In 2017, local sculptor Bruce Palone helped guide the obelisk memorializing Clackamas County Vietnam War veterans to its permanent spot in Scott Park in downtown Milwaukie.Jerry Craig, chair of Post 180's Vietnam War commemorative program, noted that there haven't been any ceremonies at Scott Park honoring veterans in Clackamas County for two years due to the construction of the new library.

Now that the Ledding Library has been finished and was dedicated earlier this year, the groups plan to rededicate the monument and the surrounding area in the park on National Vietnam Veterans Day.

On Nov. 11, 2017, hundreds of people attended the Veteran's Day dedication of local sculptor Bruce Palone's obelisk memorializing Clackamas County veterans of the Vietnam War in downtown Milwaukie. Hallie "Bud" Smith, who was missing in action, is among the 44 names of local veterans who died in Vietnam memorialized on the obelisk.
