    Camp Rilea is about a 2 hour drive from my house and the initial article on this was strange. That article stated that he died of gun shot wounds in the housing area. I feel bad for him and his family but something is off on this one.

      Funny you mentioned it. I spent 4 1/2 years at Portland Air Base and returned many times since first with my daughters living in Vancouver, WA then on TDY. I had never heard of Camp Rilea and Googled it to find the news report. Please follow this story and keep Jonn informed.
      You also live in a great place and I am envious. We would but Oregon is just too liberal for our views.

    RIP Ranger.
