WHAT WE DO...

Facts about the National Guard

The 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 National Guard. For Michigan, this would be Governor Gretchen Whitmer.


The Governor reserves the ability, under the Constitution of the United States, to call up members of the National Guard in times of domestic emergencies or need, similar to times such as now with the current COVID-19 outbreak.


The National Guards state mission is perhaps the most visible and well known to the general public. Nearly everyone has seen or heard of National Guard units responding to assist first responders in their local communities with floods, tornados, hurricanes, snowstorms, or other emergencies to include civil unrest. Realize the National Guard consists of everyday citizens just like you. We are always ready and prepared to respond if called upon to do so.
