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 is one of 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 U.S. 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 are Citizen Soldiers and Airmen who live amongst every community in Iowa who respond in a time of need of the National Guards three key missions (federal, state, and community). Our primary mission is at home within our communities and State but we will respond to the Nation needs if so called upon. We have proven to be able to work simultaneously with Federal, State, and Local agencies to accomplish the mission at hand. The Iowa National Guard has proudly served the Great State of Iowa for over 150 years and we are honored to continue our service to our communities and State.
