Return of 1042nd Medical Company, Oregon Army National Guard delayed
Due to transport issues with the unit's airframes, the arrival of the 1042nd Medical Company, (Air Ambulance) will be delayed. The unit was expected to arrival in Portland, Ore., this evening and now will arrive sometime towards the end of the week. A definitive date and time is not currently available. As soon as the information becomes solid, we will notify you all of the date and time.
The delay is due to movement of the Blackhawk Helicopters. Originally scheduled to be shipped via C5 aircraft, this aircraft was not suited for landing at Baghram, Afghanistan. Other arrangements are being made. Unit members are currently in Germany awaiting the arrival of their aircraft.
