  • Former Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski speaks to a gathering at the Governor's Employment Executive Briefing, June 14, at Camp Withycombe in Clackamas, Ore. The event, held in conjunction with Flag Day and the U.S. Army's birthday, is meant to inform attendees about the mission and vision of the Oregon National Guard, and to recognize several organizations and employers for their support of Oregon's military members and their families. Kulongoski introduced Maj. Gen. Raymond F. Rees, the adjutant general, Oregon, who was recognized for his support of Oregon's Citizen-soldiers and citizen-airmen. "This is a man who is highly-respected by the Department of Defense, but is humble enough to refer to himself as a wheat farmer from Helix, Ore.," Kulongoski said. (Air National Guard photo by Tech.
