National Guard

The Nevada Army National Guard plays a critical role throughout Nevada in times of disasters and local community needs. We were there for our citizens in the aftermath of the PEPCON explosion, handled sandbags in the flooded streets of Northern Nevada, and provided untiring support to fire fighting operations throughout rural Nevada. Furthermore, our units are highly trained and stand ready to respond in times of national crisis or threats of foreign aggression. Nevada units have served with distinction in the Gulf War and as part of peacekeeping operations in Bosnia. Members train one weekend a month and 15 days active duty each year to insure a high level of military readiness. As an added benefit, our units routinely travel overseas each year for their 15 days active duty. The likes of Germany, Honduras, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Panama, and the Philippines have provided some of the training opportunities for Nevada units.
