Portland Timbers Army - The Oregon National Guard Way!

In the wee hours of the Iraqi morning, members of the Oregon National Guard 3-116 CAV Unit stationed there gather to watch the Portland Timbers home opener. With the ten hour time difference between Iraq and Oregon, some National Guard members were up as early as 3AM, Iraqi time - making sure not to miss the game or the excitement building up to the game.

Pictured here is SPC John Winters from Hood River, Oregon. SPC Winters writes just prior to the start of the game, "Timber Nation starts tonight in our season opener at home. Timbers Army is getting all settled in Portland, and Timbers Army Iraqi style is settled in. Now we just have to wait for the opening whistle".

After the Portland Timbers won the big game, SPC Winters excitedly reports, "No pity in the Rose City!"
