Kulongoski said the dedication of the building was not about the bricks and mortar in the structure but about the spirit, courage and commitment of the Citizen-Soldiers and Airmen of the Oregon National Guard.  The 41st Infantry Division members, who adopted the nickname "Jungleers" during WWII, fought in some of the most austere environments in the South Pacific campaign.  The members of the Division are scheduled to hold their annual reunion this weekend in Portland, Ore.  (U.S.  Army photo by Sgt.
