Oregon's 241st Military Intelligence Company training for deployment
MEDIA INVITED: 
 
Warrenton, Ore.-The Oregon Army National Guard's 241st Military Intelligence Company will be training for deployment at Camp Rilea tomorrow, Aug. 28, 2001. Members of the media are invited to witness the deployment training.

The deploying soldiers are receiving theater-specific individual readiness training, or TSIRT. The training consists of scenarios and tasks relevant to the allied forces in the Balkans. The three-day training teaches soldiers customs and laws of the Serbian, Croatian and Muslim nations; vehicle, weapons and unexploded ordinance identification; vehicle and personnel search procedures; trip wire and booby trap avoidance; mine field awareness; and life-threatening situation reactions.
 
Camp Rilea hosts one of only three TSIRT sites in the nation, and the only one west of Fort Benning, Ga. The site has been used since 1998 to certify five groups deploying to the Balkans. Most recently, Camp Rilea trained the 504th Military Police battalion from Fort Lewis, Wash.
