U.S. National Guard Birthday

December 13

This annual observance commemorates the establishment of the National Guard on December 13, 1636. This day recognizes the important role played by the National Guard in protecting American communities and responding to domestic emergencies. The National Guard serves as the country’s first line of defense in times of domestic emergencies and operates under the authority of both state and federal governments. Its citizen soldiers are often called upon to assist in a wide range of missions, including disaster response and recovery, humanitarian assistance, civil support, and homeland defense. The National Guard also plays a vital role in supporting overseas military operations, with Guard units regularly deploying alongside active-duty forces. The significance of the National Guard lies in its ability to quickly respond to emergencies and provide critical support to civilian authorities in times of crisis. Their dedication and service to the country are invaluable, and they are a vital asset in protecting America’s communities and ensuring national security.
