National Guard

The D.C. National Guard plays a significant role in Presidential inaugurations.  The National Guard can be deputized as special police, a role that active duty military cannot.  This makes the National Guard an important element in large scale missions.  The D.C. National Guard has consistently supported presidential inaugurations beginning with the 1860 Inauguration of President Abraham Lincoln.
