SALEM, Ore. – Oregon National Guard Citizen-Soldiers continue to return home from overseas mobilizations across the state. The first group arrived last week and continues this week, with a team of approximately 100 Oregonians arriving in Medford yesterday who had deployed to Djibouti, Africa for nine months. The units deployed to Jordan, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Djibouti and Kosovo. These mobilizations of the 41st Infantry Brigade Combat Team are part of the second largest mobilization of Oregon troops since World War II. The last mobilization of Oregonians this size was in 2009 through 2010.
