Memorial Day 2012

May 10, 2012

Since Memorial Day 2007 Nancy Hiss has been chalking the names of coalition soldiers who died in Iraq on the sidewalks of Portland, Oregon.

The names have wound through, SW, NW, N, NE and SE Portland, over 12 miles in a continuous line from the Federal Building to the center of the Burnside Bridge.

To date she has chalked about 4770 names. There are about 30 more she will chalk between now and Memorial Day.

On Memorial Day, Nancy will join Veterans For Peace chapter 72 at Peace Park.
This will be the 4th year she has written the word peace in the languages of the nations we have been at war with.
