Oregon National Guard Reintegration Team provides support to soldiers

When you were needed, you were there. Now the Oregon National Guard Reintegration Team wants to return the favor.

The Oregon National Guard's Reintegration and Service Member Support Team has a number of resources to help commanders and airmen/soldiers of the Oregon National Guard.

Their mission is to help individuals transition back to their families, jobs, schools and their communities.

The team provides 24-hour, 7-day a week support by connecting soldiers and airmen with a number of agencies which provide benefits to Oregon National Guard members and their families.

They also have a suicide-prevention hotline, which is staffed 24/7. You can reach that number by dialing 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

Ranging from Career Transition Assistance Programs, which link Guard members with resources to help them reach their career goals, to the latest copy of the Wounded Warrior Entitlements Handbook, the Oregon National Guard Reintegration Team is there to help you.
