OREGON COUNTY -- The United States Volunteer Homeland Security Service Corps Command is being organized across the nation, including Oregon County.
This is a volunteer subordinate military element of the United States National Defense Support Command and is composed of trained, experienced, motivated, patriotic, retired and former members of the armed forces, reserves, National Guard, non veterans and concerned citizens.
Those volunteering in Oregon County will be provided free of charge federal government training courses to educate each officer in technical skills which will be needed to serve as an advisor in a leadership position.
The command will allow men and women to support the active military forces, reserves and National Guard in the war against terrorism, domestically, and in non-combat service and support missions at the local and community level.
Any Oregon County resident interested in joining this nationwide and local effort against the war on terrorism is asked to contact Col. D.E. Barker by calling 417-264-7283 for information.
