Oregon National Guard

I want to thank the Oregonian for running a very good article on the deployment of 2,600 (2,600!) members of the Oregon National Guard in the Sunday May 3rd issue. Not only did Julie Sullivan write a nice article about the largest deployment since World War II, but they included photos of 200 soldiers along with thier names, age, hometown and civilian jobs.

It’s was refreshing to see Guard members individually recognized while they are still living.

It was also humanizing to see their faces, ages, hometowns and jobs.

They did not do as good a job with thier on line site, but you can see the photos here. A version of the article is here.
