BEND, OR -- The Oregon Army National Guard’s 1st Squadron, 82nd Cavalry Regiment officially restructured under the Washington Army National Guard’s 81st Brigade, at a ceremony in Bend, Sunday. The unit transfer is part of the transition to convert Washington’s 81st from an Armor Brigade to a Stryker Brigade. 

 

The 1-82nd Cavalry Squadron consists of units from Bend, Redmond, Lebanon and The Dalles. It will remain in Oregon as part of the Oregon Army National Guard, with operational control under the 82nd Bridge Troop Command, headquartered in Clackamas. 
 
The Stryker is a family of eight-wheel drive armored vehicles designed to maneuver more easily in close and urban terrain, while still providing protection in the open. The squadron will display new Stryker equipment in the Bend and Redmond Veterans Day Parades, November 11.
