Oregon Will Deploy National Guard Soldiers To Help With Eclipse

As state and local agencies continue to prepare for the Aug. 21 solar eclipse, Gov. Kate Brown has authorized the Oregon National Guard to deploy soldiers.

The National Guard will stage six aircrafts and about 150 soldiers and airmen ahead of the eclipse weekend, OPB confirmed Thursday.

The eclipse is expected to draw 1 million visitors to the state during the height of summer travel and fire seasons.
