|More Oregon Guardsmen Deploy
The Oregon Army National Guard's 3670th Maintenance Company based out of Camp Withycombe in Clackamas, Oregon will deploy 63 soldiers on Tuesday at the Portland International Airport at 9:30 a.m.
The soldiers will head to Fort Bliss, Texas to train for 23 days before deploying to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Company was mobilized for up to 18 months, but will likely spend one year in Iraq.
The public and media are welcome to see them off. All access needs to be coordinated through airport security.
