DoD Alert Order for Eastern Oregon National Guard units
The Department of Defense has alerted more than 3,500 Citizen Soldiers of the Army National Guard's 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team for possible mobilization affecting the 3-116 Cavalry in Eastern Oregon.

The Cavalry Brigade is scheduled to be comprised of approximately 800 Oregon Guard members with the remainder being from Idaho and Montana.

Oregon's 3-116 Cavalry is comprised of:

A 3-116 CAV The Dalles, Oregon
B 3-116 CAV Redmond, Oregon
C 3-116 CAV Ontario, Oregon
D 3-116 CAV Hermiston, Oregon
HHC 3-116 CAV La Grande, Oregon

Supporting the 3-116 is F/145 with detachments throughout Eastern Oregon.

The 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team, headquartered in Idaho, will be commanded by Col. Guy Thomas, and is the largest Idaho National Guard unit.

This alert notification does not guarantee the 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team will be deployed. It is only an alert. A mobilization order is needed to establish specific time frames and location of duty. Such order has yet to be issued.
