American & Oregon Flags @ Half-Staff (pre-dawn) to Honor the memory and the Service Of Mark O. Hatfield !!!

Mark O. Hatfield - Oregonian & Statesman

We are flying two Flags @ Half-Staff to Remember & Honor Mark O. Hatfield : Oregonian, Legislator, Governor, Senator, Statesman! Thank You for your Courage, your Leadership, your Statesmanship, your Humanity, and your Service to your State and your Country!

When it came to being a "Statesman", Mark O. Hatfield was the "Real McCoy"!!!

On a most personal note, Thank You, Governor Hatfield, for your kindness to a single parent, widowed Mother and her freckled-faced, skinny-as-a-split-rail, 13 year old son in the Summer of 1965. Without your intervention I would not be what I am today: A very grateful Oregonian! Thank You, and may you always Rest In Peace here in God's Country, OREGON!!!
