Two Oregon heroes remembered on D-Day

By Jason Williams

Last year I was fortunate to visit the Normandy beaches.  At the American Cemetery I left behind two tributes.  One was for Vern White.  He served in the area as a bomber crew and later served in Oregon through Oregon Tax Research.   The other tribute was for Bill Moshofsky who served in the Army in Europe and came through the Normandy opening that the D-Day troops secured.   Bill was nice enough to write a letter for the fellow Americans who fought in Europe.  Bill Moshofsky later served Oregon by founding Oregonians In Action — the state’s premier property right advocate organization.   Noble WWII veterans who went on to shape Oregon.   (click the photo to enlarge)
