Oregon National Guard
Tribute to retired Oregon Army National Guard Brig. Gen. James B. Thayer, who was the guest of honor at the All-Star Salute to the Oregon Military event held May 18 at the Oregon Golf Club. The event kicked off the Capital Campaign to raised funds for the new Oregon Military Museum in Clackamas. Thayer was joined by his son Tommy Thayer, lead guitarist of the rock band KISS, former Oregon Governors Vic Atiyeh and Ted Kulongoski, golf legend Peter Jacobsen, and many others. This tribute gives a historical look back at the life's accomplishments of a Soldier, father, friend, respected local business owner, and WWII hero.
The Thayer Tartan
The Thayers, along with many other US citizens, trace their lineage back to Scotland. The colours reflect the prosperity of Thayers of Scottish descent in the USA and their awareness of their roots. This tartan is for the use of all of the name of Thayer born in the USA.
A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
