Khue is leading a delegation which is scheduled to visit several Oregon National Guard facilities before concluding the week with a State Partnership Program workshop in Portland, Ore., April 17-19.

The partnership between the Oregon National Guard and Vietnam was made official in November 2012 as part of the National Guard Bureau-sanctioned program, which pairs emerging democracies with National Guard states.
