Volcanoes Nation | The Volcanoes’ 7th Annual Patriotic celebration is headlined on Friday, July 4, 2014 with Vietnam Veterans Night at Volcanoes Stadium.
The Salem-Keizer Volcanoes' initial patriotic celebration was on July 4, 2008, and has since grown into a three-day annual event celebrating the many cross-sections of our military heroes, and has boomed with success. During these tributes, the Volcanoes have Thanked, Honored, and Saluted over 300 military men and woman spanning from World War II to the Middle East conflicts. Great anticipation surrounds the next chapter of the Tribute spanning the Independence Day weekend of Friday, July 4th to Sunday, July 6th.
In 2013, Volcanoes Stadium hosted a special ceremony for “Fallen Navy SEAL” Tyrone Woods of Oregon City, who was killed in combat defending America’s diplomatic outpost in Benghazi. At the time of the formal ceremony, there were 143 military personnel on the field including representatives from Washington D.C..
