The versatility of the NJ Army National Guard enables its troops to respond to domestic emergencies, combat missions, counterdrug efforts, reconstruction missions and more with speed, strength, and efficiency. Whether the call is coming from New Jersey's governor or directly from the President of the United States, Guard Soldiers are always ready and always there.
