About the Guard
The incredible versatility of the National Guard enables its troops to respond to domestic emergencies, combat missions, counter-drug efforts, reconstruction missions, and more — all with equal speed, strength, and efficiency.
Whether the call is coming from the state governor or directly from the president of the United States, Guard soldiers are always ready and always there.
The Guard serves their community, their state, and their country.
