Two JAG Officers to join Combined Joint Task Force Phoenix V for Oregon Army National Guard mission
Salem, Ore. – Two Oregon Army National Guard JAG officers will deploy to Afghanistan. They will join more than 900 Oregon Army National Guard Soldiers already there.
Capt. Sean O'Day, of Salem, Ore., and 1st Lt. Nick Paulson of Portland, Ore., both traditional guardsmen with the Oregon Army National Guard, volunteered for the deployment. They will depart for Camp Shelby, Mississippi for two weeks of training before heading to Afghanistan in mid-November.
The pair will cross-train with JAG officers already in Afghanistan who are directly supporting the Afghan National Army mission. They will join Combined Joint Task Force Phoenix V, a joint-force coalition, led by the Oregon Army National Guard's 41st Brigade Combat Team, comprising military personnel from many other states and U.S. territories.
Paulson, who has a background in bankruptcy law, recently received his commission in the Oregon Army National Guard. O'Day is the Assistant City Attorney for the City of Salem, at one time worked for the Governor's office.
