Pendleton National Guard Helicopter Aviators Won't Deploy

Posted: Updated:

PENDLETON, Ore. - The military has informed about 60 members of the National Guard in Pendleton that they won't deploy to Afghanistan in January as expected.  

The Oregon Military Department says the Oregon National Guard Chinook helicopter aviators won't head to Afghanistan because of a drawdown in forces.  

The military informed the Pendleton unit of the deployment plan one year ago.
