A Brief History of the Army National Guard & National Guard Flags
The National Guard can trace its history back to the days of the early colonies. Militias were formed from able-bodied men in order to protect the fragile colonies from attacks by Native Americans as well as other European powers such as the French colonies in Canada and the Spanish colony in Florida. These militias served in the French and Indian Wars under the command of the British, but before long they would be fighting for independence.
By the late 1760s and 70s militias were formed by citizens to have military units outside the control of the royal governors. The militias served in the war for independence, often close to their homes and for short periods, but were crucial to the victory over the British.
It is from this proud tradition that the Army National Guard was officially formed.
Federal Mission of the Army National Guard
Maintain properly trained and equipped units available for prompt mobilization for war, national emergency or as otherwise needed.
State Mission of the Army National Guard: Aiding America's Communities
The Army National Guard exists in all 50 states, three territories and the District of Columbia. The state, territory or district leadership are the Commanders in Chief for each Guard. Their Adjutants General are answerable to them for the training and readiness of the units. At the state level, the governors reserve the ability, under the Constitution of the United States, to call up members of the National Guard in time of domestic emergencies or need.
The Army National Guard's state mission is perhaps the most visible and well known. Nearly everyone has seen or heard of Guard units responding to battle fires or helping communities deal with floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, snowstorms or other emergency situations. In times of civil unrest, the citizens of a state can rest assured that the Guard will be ready to respond, if needed. During 2001, 34,855 Guardsmen were called to duty in response to the needs of their community or state.
