Mississippi

At the state level, Mississippi's Governor reserve the ability, to call up members of the Mississippi National Guard in time of domestic emergencies or need. The 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, 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. While juggling missions to Afghanistan and Iraq, the Mississippi National Guard provides desperately needed supplies, muscle and— most important—hope to its citizens in the devastating wake of Hurricane Katrina. In the face of any enemy—man or nature—the Mississippi Army National Guard will forever persevere and will always stay true to their famous battle cry,“Standfast!”
