Brunk Conley (center), speak to Pvt. 1st Class Derek Cork via Skype, following the demobilization ceremony for the Oregon Army National Guard’s 162 Engineer Co., Nov. 5, in Dallas, Ore. Cork, who was injured during the unit’s year-long deployment to Afghanistan, is recovering at Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. He was able to “virtually” participate in his unit’s demobilization via the Internet software and mobile phone. The 162 Engineers were credited with clearing more than 15,000 miles of roads during more than 6,000 hours of active missions. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt.
