The Oregon National Guard recently completed a round of training at the Yakima Firing Center, and Newstalk 870 was lucky enough to receive some photos of the action.

Multiple units of the Oregon National Guard, made up of soldiers from Keizer, to Milwaukee, from Portland to McMinnville, OR were also joined by Marine units, and some National Guard troops from Washington state.

They competed in several accuracy firing drills,  simulated various combat situations, and host of other training duties.  The training concluded June 24th.

Check out these remarkable pictures of the men and women who work hard to protect our freedoms!
