We are joined by Sgt. Lori McNeil from the Oregon Army National Guard, along with Katherine Hansen and her mother Laura, to discuss the benefits and opportunities that come along with enlisting with the National Guard.

Katherine plans to train for a medical background, in order to help others, with one day hoping to become a doctor. She explains how the training and discipline gained from serving in the National Guard will only help her to achieve her goals. The college tuition benefits from her time of service will ensure the ability to continue with her education.

Her mother is excited about Katherine’s decision to join the Guard, and the family will continue to support her in her future.

For more information about the benefits and opportunities of serving in the Oregon Army National Guard, contact Sgt. Lori McNeil at the La Grande National Guard Armory.
