The recent Veterans Parade was well attended with several custom cars and street rods from the Pharaohs Street Rods in the parade. The local Missing In America Project representative Bob Collison was on hand with his 1926 Ford Model T Coupe, handing out information on the MIAP program in the Hollywood district of Portland. The Pharaohs Street Rodders Car Club is one of the top fundraising groups in Oregon supporting the MIAP and the Lines for Life Veterans Programs.
The mission of the MIAP is to locate, identify and inter the unclaimed cremated remains of veterans through the joint efforts of private, state and federal organizations. And to provide honor and respect to those who have served this country by securing a final resting place for these forgotten heroes.
