(Salem, OR)  --  The Oregon National Guard is being called out because of next month's total solar eclipse.  Oregon's governor has authorized the use of 150 soldiers and six helicopters to help out.  The state is expecting about one-million visitors to witness the eclipse on August 21st, and officials fear the huge influx of people will jam highways and stretch resources thin.  The eclipse also coincides with peak wildfire season in Oregon.  Troops will likely deploy along the centerline of the eclipse that includes the cities of Salem, Redmond and Baker City.
