Oregon Guard engineers assembled a Bailey bridge like this for the Port of St. Helens in January. "None of us in the Oregon National Guard had put together an actual Bailey bridge for almost 10 years," Capt. Karl Pond, commander of Company B, 1249 Engineer Battalion and officer in charge of the bridge construction, said. "To actually construct one, hands on, was invaluable training."

Soldiers from the Oregon Army National Guard and Marines from the US Marine Corps Reserve in Portland carry a transom through a panel during the installation of the Bailey Bridge in St. Helens.

Soldiers and Marines work together to deploy a section of the bridge over Milton Creek in St. Helens.
