Why Oregon Is the best
From strategic leadership to our dual mission.The Oregon Army National Guard has a unique mission serving both our Nation and our local communities. This gives our Soldiers the opportunity to serve part-time and close to home while taking advantage of our benefits that put you first. Just this past year we have helped the people of Oregon by fighting forest fires, logistical support with Oregon State Police, administration support to the Oregon Employment office, search and rescue missions, and combating the COVID-19 virus. 2020 was truly the year of the Guard in our state.

education from the finest
Oregon is the best when it comes to receiving a quality education while having the National Guard pay for it. One big benefit that sets us apart from other state’s National Guards is our 100% in state tuition. This gives our Soldiers a way to pay for their education and still give them the option to transfer their Post 9/11 G.I. Bill to a family member.
