      Press release from: Oregon National Guard
      LIVING HISTORY DAY AT OREGON MILITARY MUSEUM FEATURES MILITARY ENCAMPMENTS,
      RE-ENACTORS AND HISTORIC VEHICLES

      CLACKAMAS, Ore. - May 14, 2005 -- Paying tribute to the service of American
      veterans and giving the public a fun yet realistic glimpse of historic Army
      life is what Living History Day is all about. From military bicycles to
      battle tanks, from Liberty Trucks to amphibious "DUKWs," families can enjoy
      a full day of the sights, sounds and smells of America's military past.

      Authentic military campsites from the American Revolution to present day,
      museum artifacts, arms, equipment, ordnance, uniforms, and restored military
      vehicles can be viewed. Visitors will meet re-enactors, living history
      enthusiasts and military vehicle collectors who are ready to share their
      expertise and knowledge about America's military past. Included are an
      outdoor swap meet, (space is free to vendors), and a fly-over of a military
      aircraft. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

      "The Museum offers an unforgettable experience for visitors at our Living
      History Day," said COL Don Bond, Deputy Chief of Staff, Operations. "Each
      year, the event grows bigger and better. Families get a chance to
      appreciate the freedoms won by our service men and women by seeing how they
      worked and lived."
