Oregon National Guard Spc. Brad Porter, of the 1186 Military Police Company, holds his daughter, Niema, during his unit's change of command and demobilization ceremony at Chemeketa Community College in Salem, Ore., Oct. 27.

The unit recently returned from a year-long deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, where they provided force protection, personal security for high profile visitors, and trained the Afghan National Police.

The event also included a 30-day Yellow Ribbon Reintegration event that ensures returning service members and their families are aware of health, employment and education benefits and resources. This is Porter's third deployment (Oregon Military Department Photo by Sgt. Cory Grogan)
