David Gomberg Memorial Day

Representative David Gomberg (Central Coast) delivered a powerful Memorial Day message to the Oregon House of Representatives Thursday.

While in Northern France, a schoolgirl asked Gomberg to help her with a report she was doing on the United States. Earlier, he had visited nearby Flander’s Field American Cemetery, immaculately maintained since WWI, and he suggested the girl look at the names on the stones.

“Some of them may sound English or Irish or Scottish. Some of them may sound Eastern European. Some will sound Jewish. Some will sound Chinese or Japanese. There’s many there that sound Latinx or Native American,” Gomberg said. “It’s important to understand, that if you read all those names you will better understand something about America. But there is a more important message, that these young men, not much older than yourself, came here and fought and they died so that you could be free. If you understand nothing more about America then that, then you understand something very central to who we are.”

“Time changes things, but we remember.” Gomberg said.
