Nearly 300 soldiers with the Oregon Army National Guard will be honored in a formal demobilization ceremony Saturday in Medford.
The soldiers are with the 1st Battalion, 186th Infantry Regiment, 41st Infantry Brigade Combat Team. The unit is based in Southern Oregon and has soldiers from cities including Roseburg, Coos Bay and Grants Pass. They deployed to Afghanistan in September of 2014.
Ingersoll: "Much of their mission is classified so I can't go into specifics, but they were all over Afghanistan performing security operations."
