Oregon National Guard to Train UN forces in Mongolia

More than 90 Oregon Army National Guard Soldiers from the Corvallis- and Eugene-based Bravo Company 2nd Battalion 162nd Infantry will travel to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, for three weeks in August.

How strange it is that the Oregon National Guard would be going to Mongolia to train as possible UN peace keepers.  That is certainly not the role I would expect the Guard to be playing.
