Brig. Gen. Raymond C. Byrne, Oregon Army National Guard will be honored at a formal Retirement ceremony on Sunday, March 2, 2008 at 3 p.m. at the Anderson Readiness Center, 3225 State Street, NE, Salem, Ore.

His most recent assignment is the Assistant Adjutant General (Army) position, as such he acts as The Adjutant General in his absence.

Brig. Gen. Byrne assumed duties as the Acting Adjutant General for the Oregon National Guard on October 21, 2003. As Acting Adjutant General, he had overall responsibility to direct, manage, and supervise all matters pertaining to the administration, discipline, organization, training and mobilization of the Oregon National Guard, the Oregon State Defense Force, and the Oregon Military Department. As the Chief Executive Officer of the Oregon National Guard, he was responsible and accountable to ensure that the National Guard's and Oregon Military Department's policies, goals, and objectives are in concert with the Governor and legislature of the State.

Byrne began his military service in 1971 as an enlisted soldier. He received his commission after attending Infantry Officer Candidate School. Prior to this assignment, he served as Commander, 41st Separate Infantry Brigade(Enhanced).

"I want to thank all the Soldiers, Airmen and their families for their service as members of the militia and service to the state and nation," states Byrne.
