EUGENE, Ore. -- On Sunday, veterans and their families from all over the Willamette Valley came together for the second Veterans Day Ruck at Skinner Butte Park.

The group walked up the butte and held a moment of silence.

The first Veterans Day Ruck was held in 2018 when the 18th Veterans Day Parade in Springfield was canceled.
