Unique Oregon

Oregon is unique as the only state without a U.S. military base, as related by Paul and Carol Wild while sailing near Williamsburg with their children. There’s Fort Stevens on the Columbia River, but it’s on the Washington side. “Part of the reason is that the state wasn’t founded until after the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804-06),” John said, “so there wasn’t any military activity in the first place.” In more contemporary news, “The University of Oregon was the only college to make it nearly all the way in both NCAA tournaments for football and basketball last year,” John added.
