Soldier Readiness Programs (SRP) in November. The 41st Brigade Combat Team, Oregon National Guard, is on alert and preparing for mobilization and deployment overseas next Spring. The SRP’s (1-2 Nov and 15-16 Nov) saw Oregon Trail Chapter Staff and Volunteers at Camp Withycombe, Portland, OR, reminding deploying soldiers about the Red Cross and Emergency Communications support.

The Commander, 41st Brigade, will also host a series of “Town Hall Meetings” in December for “soldiers and families”. OTC will be there to again remind families about Red Cross programs and services. “Get to Know Us” brochures and SAF magnetic “contact” information pads will be available. Information about the new course: “Coping With Deployments: Psychological First Aid For Military Families” is now available. (Wayne Armour; 503-280-1455).
