Abstract

The Iowa National Guard is a dynamic organization operating in an ever-changing environment. The Iowa Army and Air National Guard are organized under Departments of the Army and Air Force tables of organization and equipment, and are trained and equipped in accordance with Department of Defense policies. Our primary purpose is to train and be able to deploy combat ready organizations and units to respond to war and national emergencies. The Iowa National Guard and the Homeland Security and Emergency Management Division are the primary organizations in state government for responding to and mitigating emergency situations in Iowa. Through the National Guard's unique peacetime status of being under the state governor's control that is provided by the US Constitution, the National Guard is a primary response force for dealing with emergencies and natural and man-made disasters that may occur in the state. We have over one hundred units statewide that are trained and equipped to perform a federal wartime mission and are available to respond to the needs of the citizens of Iowa. We collectively have a vast array of key customers. This wide variance is due to the National Guard's three missions (federal, state, and community) and the wide span of commands and jurisdictions in which we operation to accomplish our missions. Our customers include, however, are not limited to: - War fighting combatant commanders, the United States Forces Command, and the National Guard Bureau. The governor and citizens of Iowa, all state agencies and law enforcement agencies, civilian businesses, not-for-profit entities, media, and service organizations. The United States Training and Doctrine Command, National Training Center, Joint Readiness Training Center, 1st and 5th United States Armies, Air Combat Command, and military organizations and units of all services. - The Department of Homeland Defense, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and law enforcement agencies.
