Your National Guard: Adapting to Meet Future Challenges

  • Thursday, 04/06/2017: 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

  • Session Number:  KEY4:


The threats we face in the homeland are diverse. We have to prepare for natural disasters, civil unrest that ignites for various reasons, and man-made threats such as cyber which continue to become a greater threat every day. Keeping pace with the demands of protecting our nation requires the brave men and women of the National Guard to operate in three mission sets. Fighting America's wars, protecting and securing the homeland, and building enduring partnerships are inextricably linked and as a result anything done in one mission area only increases capability in the other. In our 380th year of existence, the National Guard has and will continue to adapt and will remain... Always Ready, Always There!
