Salute to Our Veterans

The La Pine Rodeo Association feels it is very important that we take time to salute the many members of the United States military. On Friday night we like to kick off the rodeo and has dedicated the performance as a special salute to our veterans.

We are extremely humbled and very honored to have a military personal to come out and color guard present our nation’s flag that nigh, as we salute some of our country’s finest men and women who have served or are serving in active duty here and abroad. The La Pine Rodeo proudly supports America’s wounded and fallen soldiers and their families at each performance, with special recognition during Friday's opening ceremonies. The core principles of America’s soldiers so closely reflect the ways of the west.

There are many active and retired members of all branches of the armed services in our community, even rodeo cowboys who have also served. Many are members of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), Northwest Professional Rodeo Association (NPRA) and Military Rodeo Cowboys Association (MRCA).
