Traveling Roadside Memorials and Vehicle Memorial Tributes

Traveling Memorials

Traveling Memorials are taking the traditional Roadside Memorial in a new direction. The image at right is a traveling Veteran's Memorial called "Field of Honor" put on by the Veterans of Oregon. This photo was taken in Sandy, Oregon.

Field of Honor

From the Veterans of Oregon website:

The Field of Honor is a traveling memorial consisting of 1,000 flags, all of which have been previously flown over our nation’s capital. Each flag pole will contain nameplates of veterans who served in the armed forces. Veterans, friends, or family members of a veteran can have a nameplate added to a flag in the Field of Honor.

Personal Vehicle Memorial Messages

We see more and more of these personal memorial messages on vehicles as families share the loss of their loved ones on their automobiles. Most often these are custom stickers pasted on the back window, although some are painted by hand.
