Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), after completing his 382nd round trip between Oregon and Washington, D.C., will spend Tuesday and Wednesday in southern Oregon focusing on veterans issues, forest health, fighting the scourge of meth, and local jobs.
On Nov. 10 he joins the Rogue Valley Detachment of the Marine Corps League as they celebrate the Marine Corps 234th birthday. That will be followed by a meeting with the Southern Oregon Meth Project in Medford and then a luncheon with Medford Rotary for a congressional update at their noon meeting.
Other events on Nov. 10 include a tour of the Siskiyou Fire area. On his last trip he toured the Deer Ridge Fire. He will complete his public appearances on Nov. 10 with a visit to Sky Research in Ashland. They specialize in the detection of unexploded ordinance on former military training grounds, but have also developed technology to detect IEDS and suicide bombers entering checkpoints.
On Veterans Day, Rep Walden will begin with a Young Marines breakfast in Merlin. From there he will go the ceremony at the SORCC Theater (V.A. Domiciliary) at 10 a.m. to participate in the Veterans Day ceremony at that facility.
