2013 Annual Report | 2
State of Georgia Department of Defense OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL 1000 Halsey Ave. Building 447 Marietta, GA 30060
t is with great pride that I present you with this Annual Report outlining the accomplishments of the Georgia Department of Defense for 2013. This report reflects the outstanding support and capabilities that our more than 15,000 men and women bring to the global war fight and right here in our great state of Georgia. Over the course of 2013, the Georgia Department of Defense conducted numerous operations and received accolades indicative of our quality organization and outstanding personnel. The Army Chief of Staff selected the Georgia Army National Guard as the National Guard 2013 Army Communities of Excellence winner based upon our best business practices. Globally, we continued to provide ready units to the war fight. Within the United States, our units have provided personnel and equipment capabilities in support of protecting our southern borders against both illegal immigration and drugs. Here in Georgia, your National Guard service members have continued to fight the war on drugs alongside local and state law enforcement agencies through counterdrug operations. It is indeed humbling to lead such great Georgians as they accomplish numerous and varied missions all around the world time and time again. As we face an uncertain federal military budget in the coming years, the Georgia Department of Defense will also face challenges maintaining operational readiness, force structure and mission sets as we compete with the active component and reserves to remain relevant. Over the course of the War on Terrorism, the National Guard and specifically the Georgia National Guard have successfully evolved from a strategic force to an operational force. We must be vigilant and ensure we do not lose the progress we have fought so hard to achieve. Now more than ever, we need you, our fellow Georgians, to show your active support for the Georgia Department of Defense and enable us to be ready when called upon. The Soldiers, Airmen, State Defense Force members and state employees of the Georgia Department of Defense remain a ready and relevant force that has proven to be integral to our countryâ€™s global and domestic operations. As evidenced by the operations carried out over the past year by our well trained and dedicated personnel, your Georgia Department of Defense has answered the call of both its nation and state and is well postured to do so when asked again. The citizens of Georgia can take comfort and pride in knowing its Georgia National Guard is Always Ready, Always There and Always on Target â€“ that is YOUR Georgia National Guard! Sincerely,
James Butterworth Maj. Gen. Jim Butterworth The Adjutant General of Georgia

from our Guardsmen and civilians employed by the GaDoD. With a federal budget of $680 million and state budget of $9 million, the Georgia Department of Defense also produces lasting results in the state with flourishing youth programs, an outstanding military readiness capability, and ingenuity in military construction programs – which at present are injecting more than $57 million into the Georgia economy. Despite our large presence in the state, the Georgia Department of Defense and its operations account for only .001 percent of the state budget in 2014 – just $9 million. Overall, the Georgia Department of Defense annually injects more than one billion dollars into the Georgia economy, making it a vital part of our thriving economy. This is accomplished through payroll, logistics, maintenance and service contracts, construction and many other ways. As such, the
Georgia Department of Defense is one of the largest employers in Georgia and significantly impacts our economy. Additionally, the fact that 150 of the 159 counties either have a National Guard armory or are immediately adjacent to a county with one, demonstrates our statewide economic presence and impact. While our economic impact in Georgia is significant, the most important asset we have is our service members. The Georgia Department of Defense service members are not just the protectors of your communities; we are your brothers and sisters, your neighbors and friends. In times of peace, we live side-by-side by with you, working to make this state great. And in times of war and peril, know that your Georgia Department of Defense will answer the call as we are always ready, always there, always on target!
he motto for the Georgia Department of Defense reads “always ready, always there, always on target!” That statement paints a highly accurate portrait of what this organization offers the state of Georgia and the nation. In meeting the requirement to provide ready and relevant forces to the combatant commanders and homeland defense and defense support to civil authorities, the Georgia Army and Air National Guard have a significant economic impact upon the economy of the state of Georgia. With a 15 percent increase in personnel since 2005, more than 15,000 men and women make up the Georgia Department of Defense, hailing from each of the 159 counties across the Peach State – making our service members and civilian staff truly “home grown.” In payroll tax alone, the state collects more than $25 million

Commander Georgia Air National Guard
he Georgia Air National Guard is always committed to its vision of developing top-tier Airmen and units to protect our nation across the spectrum of conflict and to protect its citizens from natural and man-made disasters with our joint services and interagency partners. Even with the uncertainty during sequestration, we will continue to maintain
Chief Master Sgt. Joseph Greene State Command Chief Georgia Air National Guard
the high deployment tempo and level of excellence expected of the more than 2,800 Airmen of the Georgia Air National Guard. Several of the Georgia Air Guard’s operational units deployed personnel and equipment throughout the year in support of global operations in addition to the units’ Air Expeditionary Force taskings. The Georgia Air Guard’s core missions are still in high-demand. The Georgia Air Guard’s largest unit, the 116th Air Control Wing (ACW) based at Robins Air Force Base, flying the E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS) aircraft, has continuously deployed aircraft and personnel in Southwest Asia for the last 12 years, logging more than 94,000 flying hours in support of combatant commanders, with 8,800 missions flown in 2013. The 165th Airlift Wing based in Savannah, flying the C-130H aircraft, has deployed aircraft and personnel to Iraq and Afghanistan, on average, every 18 months. In 2013, the unit flew more than 2,800 hours, 980 of which were flown in combat operations in the Middle East. In February, C-130 aircraft returned from a four-month deployment for the eleventh time in support of the War on Terror. Our geographically separated units also continued their support of the Global War on Terror in 2013. The 202nd Engineering Installation Squadron deployed for 180 days to support forward operating locations in Iraq and Afghanistan.Twenty percent of Brunswick’s 224th Joint Communications Support Squadron mobilized for a sixmonth rotational deployment to support operational requirements in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility. The 117th Air Control Squadron deployed 80 personnel to support OEF in Southwest Asia, and 25 of the 283rd Combat Communications Squadron returned from a six-month tasking to Southwest Asia. Although some of our units did not deploy this year, they did support real world taskings and important inspection, training and exercise operations in their
regular and joint environments. The 165th Air Support Operations Squadron conducted its first Combined Unit Inspection, as well as support the Ga. ARNG’s 48th IBCT during its XCTC exercise at Fort Stewart, GA. Several personnel from the 139th Intelligence Squadron were tasked to support active duty Air Force and national intelligence missions at NSA/CSS Georgia and 1AF/ AFNORTH. Members from the 116th Force Support Squadron participated in the 57th Presidential inauguration by feeding more than 5,000 guard members. The 530th Air Force Band, otherwise known as the Air National Guard Band of the South, concluded its 66-year history with a deactivation ceremony in September 2013. As of October 1, 2013, the trademark name and logo will be carried by the 572nd Air Force Band from Tennessee. When not deployed, our units continue to maintain mission readiness by taking an active role in supporting Georgia’s homeland defense and defense support to civil authorities’ missions. By providing unique capabilities – such as information awareness assessment, engineering, airlift and communications support – the Georgia Air Guard is well positioned to meet the growing demands of civil authorities. Our Airmen train regularly during exercises with the Georgia National Guard’s 78th Homeland Response Force; the 4th Civil Support Team; the Chemical, Biological, Radiological/ Nuclear, and Explosive enterprise; FEMA Region IV; other FEMA regions; and with our partners in the Georgia Emergency Management Agency. Our dual-status nature, with responsibilities to the state and federal government, makes our mission unique and provides the flexibility for both local and global response. In these times of fiscal constraint, we are expected to do more with less, but we will continue to provide highly motivated mission-ready forces for employment by the Governor and the United States Department of Defense.

116th Air Control Wing
Col. Kevin D. Clotfelter Commander 116th Airlift Wing
With nearly 11 years of continuous deployment support to United States C ent ra l C ommand and incre asing involvement to all combatant commands, the116th Air Control Wing (ACW) c o nt i nu e s t o p r o v i d e E - 8 C Jo i nt SurveillanceTarget Attack Radar System (JSTARS) aircraft as a national asset. The Command, Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance airborne platform detects, tracks, and solves problems to optimize the use of military force and safeguard American lives. R esiding at R obins Air Force Base, Warner Robins, Ga., JSTARS is the sole provider of the much lauded and persistently tasked E-8C fleet. The 116th ACW has been on a continuous deployment cycle since 9/11 and flown more than 94,000 combat hours with over 8,800 hours in deployed operations during the calendar year of 2013. The 116th ACW is established as the total force host and the Air National Guard
lead for Team JSTARS with the 461st Air Control Wing providing regular Air Force personnel to the ‘Active Associate’ construct.The 116th is considered a ‘Total Force’ expert, helping to meet future force construct demands. As we begin 2014, the 116th ACW and Team JSTARS is ready to meet the challenges that lie ahead, focusing on the core missions of Global Reach, Global Power and Global Vigilance. The wing was recently awarded its 17th Air Force Outstanding Unit Award, deploying close to 2,000 personnel who supported six United States combatant commanders during the highest operations tempo in the wing’s history. The 116th Operations Group displayed unsurpassed combat readiness by deploying crews to five separate theaters within a 13-day window to support short-notice deployment operations. Simultaneously, Team JSTARS conducted 10 Combined Planning Operations Exercises along with seven Joint Air Sea Battle Exercises with Naval Forces. Team JSTARS has continued to set the pace by flying over 6,000 flight hours in support of DoD operations. The 116th OG continued its tradition of success by awarding an elite group the Georgia Medal for Valor, the Earl T. Ricks Leadership Award, the Lance P Sijan Leadership Award and the General George C. Kenney “Lessons Learned” Award. Superior maintenance and operations integration is at the core of effective flying. The 116th Maintenance Group’s 96 percent sortie completion rate increased aircraft availability to support critical missions around the globe in multiple overseas and domestic locations, surpassing an unprecedented 86,000 combat hours flown. The focus on maintenance earned the 2013 Secretary of the Air Force Fieldlevel Maintenance Award for the 116th and 461st Aircraft Maintenance Squadrons. The 116th Mission Support Group also provides support, both overseas and abroad. The group’s Force Support, C ommunications, Logistics, and Security Squadrons deployed personnel and provided logistics support to four Combatant Commands. At home, the

MSG contracting office awarded over $5.4 million worth of contracts, insuring construction and repair projects,and commodities purchases were completed to meet mission requirements. The 116th Civil Engineering Squadron, an arm of the MSG, managed and maintained nearly one million square feet of real property at Robins AFB and Dobbins ARB and coordinated over $2.4 million of sustainment, restoration and modernization projects. Making national headlines, Force Support fed more than 5,000 guard m e m b e r s a s s i s t i n g w it h t h e 5 7 t h Presidential Inauguration and the 116th Explosive Ordnance Flight interviewed as subject matter experts afterthe Boston Bombing. Epitomizing ‘Service Before Self ’, the synergistic efforts of three Security Forces personnel stepped into action to perform CPR on a Delta passenger in flight, saving her life. Maint aining a he a lt hy force is always a challenge, but in 2013, the 116th Medical Group (MDG) prepared more than 550 members for deployment to prime locations and performed the important task of monitoring the medical status of flying personnel. The MDG is fully mission capable to respond to any emergency. The group also participated in four CBRNE Enhanced Rapid Force and Homeland Response Force exercises and evaluations to include Search and Extraction capabilities. Fifty ANG members earned qualifications in one or more of the following certifications: Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Trauma Nurse Core Course and Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support. During drill weekends, the116th MDG evaluated the health status of approximately 1,300 personnel. The men and women of the 116th ACW are proud to serve and consider it an honor to take an active role in their communities and in protecting thenation. The 116th’s reach spans globally because our support begins locally.The 116th continues to be always ready, always there, and always on target. Go Guard!
165th Airlift Wing Georgia’s 165th Airlift Wing is located at Savannah International Airport and is composed of more than 900 men and women, who support, maintain and fly the unit’s eight C-130H Hercules aircraft. The mission of the 165th Airlift Wing is to provide tactical airlift of personnel, equipment and supplies. During 2013, aircraft and crews of the 165th flew missions to dozens of nations around the world. The unit maintains one of the highest aircraft operational readiness records in the National Guard and the U.S. Air Force. As a National Guard wing, part of its dual-mission is also subject to be called upon for assistance during state emergencies to airlift food, medical supplies, equipment and personnel domestically or internationally. These missions extend the emergency relief support during natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, forest fires, search and rescue operations and defense support to civil authorities. For example, after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, 165th crews were on stand-by alert to aid victims in the northeast. Ultimately, other units were called to participate in these efforts, but Wing members were ready to answer the call if necessary. The 165th serves as the host base for Brunswick’s 224th Joint Communications Support Squadron, Hunter Army Air Field’s 117th Air Control Squadron, the 165th Air Support Operations Squadron, and the Combat Readiness Training Center both in Garden City, Ga. In January, the wing served as the lead unit in an operational readiness exercise. The wing was validated as a ready-to-deploy unit with a “satisfactory” rating. Immediately, the wing started preparing for a unit compliance inspection which was just recently completed, receiving a satisfactory grade.
The war effort continued with twelve members of the 165th Small Air Terminal heading to Afghanistan for a five-month rotation with 25 members of the Civil Engineering Squadron and Fire Department. In 2013, the 165th flew more than 2,800 hours, of which 980 hours were flown in combat/combat support operations in the Middle East. This increased the wing’s combat experience to ten years of combat operations and well over 11,600 combat flight hours without a single mishap. In October 2012, the 165th C-130 aircraft began the more than 6,000mile journey for a four-month stint at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia. This is the tenth time the 165th has deployed to the Middle East or Afghanistan in support of the War on Terror. Accompanying those aircraft were more than 85 Georgia Guard Airmen, including members of the Wing’s operations personnel and its maintenance department. This included four flying crews. In May and June 2013, the unit took part in two U.S. Southern Command Operation Coronet Oak deployments. The purpose of Coronet Oak is to resupply U.S. Operations in South and Central America. From April to June, it also provided one airlift and two crews to support Operation New Dawn, providing aeromedical transport for AMC. Since the beginning of operations in the Persian Gulf, the 165th has been integrally involved in air operations. Several elements of the Wing have deployed throughout the region, with Airman serving in Uzbekistan, Turkey, Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. In 2009, the 165th deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. In 2005 the unit deployed aircraft and more than 100 personnel to Karshi- Khanabad, Uzbekistan, for 11 months. During this period, the unit airlifted more
Col. James Edenfield Commander 165th Airlift Wing
than 35,660 tons of cargo in support of the War on Terror. Savannah’s C-130s were joined by additional C - 1 3 0 s f r o m t h e Ne v a d a a n d Delaware Air National Guard and attached the 737th Air Expeditionary Squadron to put aircraft in the air and move equipment, food and people in support of deployed operations. The wing continues to receive numerous awards, including nine Air Force Outstanding Unit Awards, and enjoys the reputation of being one of the top airlift units in the nation. This is all directly attributed to the professionalism and esprit-de-corps of the Guardsmen who have served, and are now serving, within its ranks.

The unit will return in lateSpring 2014. 1 1 7 t h has supp or te d s e ve r a l test and communications e vents for a l l AC S u n it s , an d t h e u n it has been selected again to be the first ACS to receive new upgraded communications equipment based on their track record of excellence. The unit recently began supporting c om mu n i c at i ons for E me rge nc y O p erat ions C enter exercis es for Hunter Army Airfield. Tw i c e t h i s y e a r, 1 1 7 t h operations personnel went to Naval Air Station Fallon, Nev. to
support carrier air wing work-ups and w arg ame s as t he y pre p are d for deployment to S outhwest Asia. This gave 117th operations personnel the opportunity to train with pilots from carrier groups that will be supported during the unit deployment 2013-2014. The 117th was also acknowledged for its community efforts in 2013, contributing over $1,000 to local charities and received recognition for its “top five participation” in the Combined Fe dera l C amp aig n, w it h a 100% contribution rate.
165th Air Support Operations Squadron Close Air Support (CAS) for advancing ground units is often critical in perilous combat environments like Afghanistan. The “Battlefield Airmen” of Garden City’s 165th Air Support O p erat ions S qu adron (ASOS) deploy with, advise and assist joint force commanders in planning, re qu e st i ng , c o ord i n at i ng an d controlling CAS, reconnaissance, and tactical airlift missions. In May 2013, the 165th ASOS conducted its first Combined Unit Inspection consisting of 9th Air Force Standardization/Evaluation a n d AC C Un i t C o mp l i a n c e Inspection. The 165 ASOS was
rated an “Excellent” overall with five members earning “Superior Performers” and an additional two members receiving the inspector general coin. This performance far exceeded Air Force standards. While 2013 marked the first time since 2002 that the ASOS did not have members overseas supporting combat operations, the training and operations tempo has not slowed down. Members have conducted CAS training missions in Florida, Michigan New York, North Carolina and Townsend Bombing Range here in Georgia. Additionally, members went to Germany and Latvia to train on bombing ranges in those

respective countries. In addition, the 165th ASOS deployed to Fort Stewart, Ga. to support the 48th Infantry Brigade C omb at Te am, G e org i a Ar my National Guard, during the latter’s XCTC in September, conducted annual training at Moody AFB, and graduated two members from Basic Airborne School at Fort Benning, Ga.
224th Joint Communications \\ Squadron The 224th Joint Communications Support Squadron (JCSS) provides communications support as directed by the United States Transportation C ommand, Air Force Space Command, and Ga. DoD. It is one of six active, reserve and Air National Guard units assigned to the Joint Communications Support Element. In 2013, the 224th JCSS mobilized 20 percent of its Airmen for a six-month rotational deployment in support of operational requirements in the U.S Central Command’s area of responsibility.

The unit provides scalable command and control, i nte l l i ge n c e, s u r ve i l l an c e an d reconnaissance,and information operationscapabilities to expeditionary air and space forces for any contingency operation. The 283rd CCS recently returned from a six-month Joint
Achievement Medals were awarded to 224th Airman for contributions to the success of numerous direct action combat missions of supported Joint Task Forces. During this deployment, the 224th embarked on a five-month humanitarian mission aboard the USS Pearl Harbor to six IndoPacific countries in Samoa, Tonga, the Marshall Islands, Kiribati, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea. Their actions enabled the command element to provide remote communications and track move ments of 793 p ers onnel t hroug hout t he mission. The squadron’s level of support to civil authorities in 2013 was also impressive, providing direct support to U.S. Northern Command and Cyber Command homeland defense missions.

139th Intelligence Squadron The primary mission of the 139th Intelligence Squadron (IS) is to execute cryptologic intelligence operations to satisfy strategic, operational and tactical intelligence requirements of national decision makers, combatant commands, combat operations, plans and forces. Additionally, the 139th IS has the state mission to provide a trained and equipped force to assist the citizens of Georgia in times of emergency. The 45-member intelligence squadron employs 38 traditional and seven full-time Guardsmen. The unit fits the total force initiative “classic associate” squadron model of t he Air Force by work ing
alongside the Active Duty’s 480th Intelligence, Sur veillance, and Reconnaissance Group at Fort Gordon. The 139th IS is tasked to support two distinct USAF missions: the Distributed Common Ground System and NationalTactical Integration. Following its standup in 2008 as Detachment1, 116th Air Control Wing, the 139th IS was federally recognized as a U.S. Air Force Squadron in 2010, and also declared initial operational capability in 2010. Full operational capability is expected to be reached in late 2014. The 139th IS continued a high operational mission tempo in 2013, with several personnel tasked to support active duty USAF and national intelligence missions at NSA/CSS Georgia and 1AF/ AFNORTH. Additionally, two personnel augmented the 117th Air Control Squadron’s deployment to CENTCOM. Technical Sgt. Travis Huffman won NSA/CSS’s National Threat Operations Center Military
Performer of the Quarter for 1st Quarter 2013. The amount and variance of operational support was quite extensive across the spectrum. 139 IS was recognized with its first Air Force Outstanding Unit Award in 2013 for achievements during the Feb 2010-May 2011 timeframe. The 139th IS also continues to support regular production of the nation of Georgia’s diplomatic, i n for m at i on a l , m i l it ar y, an d e c o n o m i c s u m m a r y, w h i c h supports the Adjutant General and Georgia Department of Defense staffs in their efforts with the State Partnership Program.

530th Air Force Band The 530th Air Force Band (also known as the Air National Guard Band of the South) supported global Air Force and Air National Guard missions by fostering patriotism and communicating a strategic message by performing musical services for the military community as well as the general public. The unit was officially inactivated October 1, 2013. Maj. Alan McConnell relinquished command to Maj. Gen. Thomas Moore, and the current and former members were recognized for
Combat Readiness Training Center Lieutenant Co. Thomas Grabowski assumed command of Savannah’s Combat Readiness Training Center in 2013, a place where the only constant in the past year has been change. The threatened personnel cuts of early 2012 took effect in FY 2013. The CRTC lost 26 of its fulltime personnel – a total of more than 450 years combined military experience. Still, the unit’s strategic vision did not change, nor the demands placed upon it. While absorbing the staff reductions, the CRTC made a concerted effort to lean forward in a number of areas which will continue to pay dividends to the state and Total Force far beyond the foreseeable future. Colonel Todd Freesemann’s initiative legitimized the CRTC’s Cyber Training School throughout the Air Force. The staff, working with Air Education Training Command (AETC), commenced the arduous task of accrediting the only Air National Guard Cyber Training Facility which included each instructor achieving professorial status so students
their contributions. Prior to inactivation, the band was reduced in size but remained active by using four ensembles to fulfill mission requests in three states. The band’s final community performance was a Memorial Day parade in Savannah, Ga., with its final official performance at Air Headquarters family day celebration in July at Clay National Guard Center. Up on inac t ivat ion, t he b and’s marketing name, “The Air National Guard Band of the South,” its brand and mission were transferred to the 572nd Air Force Band, located in Tennessee.
The Air National Guard Band of the South’s rich history will always be a part of the heritage of the Georgia Air National Guard.
attending the cyber courses would not only receive AFSC credit, but also college credit through the Community College of the Air Force. The school now has two ‘regular’ Air Force instructors permanently assigned to the team, joining the resident ANG staff of the CRTC, a feat not seen elsewhere in the Guard. The efforts by the Marine Corps to expand Townsend Bombing Range moved forward in FY 2013 as Town Hall meetings were conducted to better brief the public and our neighbors in Long and McIntosh Counties of the possibilities in store. At present, Townsend owns a 5,000 acre footprint, but with the now-allocated congressional funding, the Range is expected to grow to nearly 32,000 acres, facilitating the needs of the F-35’s scheduled arrival at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort in late 2014. At the same time, Air Force (Joint Tactical Aircraft Controllers are training on the range, working with fighter aircraft from the Air Force, ANG, Marines and Navy. The local presence of the 165th Air Support Operations Squadron continues to attract other ground units to the range from other bases/services.
The CRTC’s continuing flexibility allows it to improve its Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation with advancing technologies, providing today’s air warrior with exceptional logistical support and the most realistic electronic war environment utilizing Joint Threat Emitters and link capability ensuring they remain on the leading edge of the nation’s ability to bring the air battle to the enemy, regardless of the fighter airframe. In years past the Remagen drop zone at Fort Stewart had been an exceptionally critical training area for C-130 pilots needing Assault Landing training on a dirt strip. Over the past several years of war, C-130 crews have continued this activity in the theater of operations, but in the days of the drawdown, these same pilots will be required to continue this skill. Realizing this need, CRTC command determined the Remagen DZ could once again become a valuable commodity. Working with Fort Stewart command, and a hybrid ANG/US Army Red Horse Civil Engineering Squadron from New Mexico, the old drop zone has returned to life and the first C-130s are scheduled to land there in January 2014.

Georgia State Defense Force
When ordered by the Adjutant General, the Georgia State Defense Force (GSDF) provides an organized, trained, disciplined, rapid response, uniformed force. GSDF volunteers respond to needs and emergency situations as defined by the Adjutant General and the Governor, and assist local authorities where such missions do not conflict, as authorized under the Official Code of Georgia, Title 38. In 2013, the GSDF conducted its first formal National Association for Search and Rescue certification course for select Search and Rescue Specialization II personnel, while at the same time modernizing training courses across all spectrums of the GSDF force. More than 400 GSDF volunteers met at Fort Stewart to participate in their Annual Training (AT),
creating a realistic exercise putting the totality of each unit’s training into action. AT 2013 was designed as a force-wide search and rescue mission run as an Army Readiness Training Evaluation Program. In 2013, the GSDF continued to run nationally recognized search and rescue courses as well as Officer Candidate School, Captain/Warrant Officer Candidate School, soldier leadership and numerous initial entry training courses. GSDF also stood up its own military entrance processing station. Other highlights for the organization in 2013 include its support of the Georgia Army National Guard 171st Aviation at their annual training; providing search and rescue support to the Jenkins County Emergency Management Agency; assisting the Georgia Army National Guard in testing its tactical communications through a communications exercise and participating in several opposing force exercises in support of Georgia National Guard deployment at Clay National Guard Center in Marietta and Fort Stewart, Ga. Prior-service veterans comprise approximately 33 percent of the GSDF force. State Defense Force members act as a force-multiplier to

the Ga. DoD, capable of immediate response whenever they may be needed, assisting with everything from search and rescue missions, to disaster relief efforts, to helping reunite redeploying Guardsmen with their families. When called upon, the GSDF volunteers also provide a variety of support functions for the Georgia National Guard including family support, legal assistance, medical and chaplaincy support, and technical assistance in a variety of other areas. The GSDF also performs defense support to civil authority missions such as evacuation and control during natural disasters, perimeter safety and medical assistance at major public events. The Georgia State Defense Force provides a wide variety of training and educational opportunities – from military operations to Community Emergency Response Team training – for its own personnel as well as the personnel of the Georgia National Guard. The strong working relationship with the Georgia National Guard allows the GSDF to remain relevant and ready to serve the state and its citizens, now and long into the future.

Defense Support of Civil Authorities The Georgia Department of Defense is always ready to provide support to the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) and the citizens of Georgia in the event of natural and/or manmade disasters. We do this by maintaining relationships, developing and subsequently refining our written plans, conducting exercises and supporting real world events. In April 2013, Ga. DoD participated in U.S. Northern Command Annual Interagency Hurricane Table Top Exercise hosted by U.S. Army North in San Antonio, Texas. This exercise focused on synchronization across state and federal agencies, the purpose being to present interagency partners the capabilities each entity brings to the response and the method by which they bring those capabilities. This allows all domestic operations officers from the National Guard’s hurricane states and territories to come together to discuss their plans, preparedness and exercises in order to ensure the National Guard is always ready. The Georgia Department of Defense also has representation at GEMA’s Emergency Managers Association Group meetings and their seasonal preparedness meetings at the State Operations Center. The Georgia Department of Defense continually develops and refines written emergency
operations plans by conducting Joint Planning Group meetings throughout the year and by conducting external reviews of our plans. Ga. DoD works with other agencies in order to share and discuss those plans. For example, in 2013, Ga. DOD plans were shared with the Georgia Department of Public Health, Georgia Emergency Management Agency, the Alabama National Guard and the Florida National Guard. The most effective way to remain prepared for natural or manmade disasters is to conduct various exercises. The Georgia Department of Defense participated in many emergency response exercises throughout 2013. In addition to participating in the U.S. Northern Command Annual Interagency Hurricane Table Top Exercise, Ga. DoD also participated in exercises, Ardent Sentry and Vigilant Guard in May 2013. Exercise Ardent Sentry was a bilateral exercise that involved numerous federal, provincial, state and local agencies in Canada and the U.S. The exercise focused primarily on defense support of civil authorities, but contained elements of the homeland defense mission as well. The primary objective of the exercise was to give federal, provincial, state and local authorities the opportunity to work together across a full spectrum of training opportunities to better prepare participants to respond to state and national crises. The exercise stressed consequence management for a range of man-made and natural disasters. Elements of the Georgia National Guard also traveled to
31 | Georgia Department of Defense
Florida in May to participate in Exercise Vigilant Guard, which is an annual interagency training drill. Along with state and local first responders, members of the Georgia and Florida National Guard trained together in this scenario-based exercise to reinforce the relationship needed to support the needs of citizens during domestic emergencies. During the month of May, the Ga. DoD participated in GEMA’s 2013 hurricane exercise. In June Ga. DoD conducted an internal tornado scenario exercise in order to prepare for the potential of tornado emergencies in the state of Georgia. During 2013, the Georgia Department of Defense provided support to civil authorities during real-world events, as well. The Joint Staff sent representatives to the Fulton County Emergency Operations Center in support of the Peachtree Road Race. The 4th Civil Support Team and the 116th Air Control Wing’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team supported local, state, and federal authorities throughout the year on a variety of civil support operations. The Georgia Department of Defense remains ready to support the state of Georgia and its citizens and will always be ready to provide defense support to civil authorities.

4th WMD Civil Support Team
he 22 personnel of the 4th Weapons of Mass D e st r u c t i on ( W M D ) C i v i l S u p p o r t Te a m (CST) provide support to civil authorities at domestic chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear ( C BR N ) i nc i d e nt s ite s by of fe r i ng identification and assessment of hazards. They also advise civil authorities and facilitate the arrival of follow-on military forces during emergencies and incidents of WMD ter ror ism, intent iona l or unintentional release of CBRN materials, and natural or man-made disasters that result in, or could result in, catastrophic loss of life or property. The 4th WMDCST complements and enhances, but does not duplicate, state CBRN response capabilities. The Adjutant General can either employ the 4th WMD-CST to support the state response under the direction of the
governor or aid in another stateâ€™s request for response under another governor. The 4th WMD-CST is comprised of full-time Army and Air National Guard personnel. The unit is divided into six sections: command; operations; communications; administration/logistics; medical/analytical and survey. E ach WMD-CST deploys to an incident site using its internally assigned vehicles, which include a command vehicle, operations trailer and a communications platform called the unified command suite. This command suite provides a broad spectrum of secure communications capabilities. The 4th WMD-CST also can deploy with an analytical laboratory system vehicle containing a full suite of analytical equipment to support the characterization of hazards and several general-purpose vehicles. The CST can be moved by air, rail, commercial truck or ship. The 4th WMD-CST was one of the first ten WMD-CST units originally established by the U.S. Department of Defense. In 2013, Georgiaâ€™s 4th WMD-CST was active across the state training with first responders at the Cobb County Safety Village, providing vital support for
large-draw events, technical assistance for Secret Service appointed National Special Security Event (NSSE) with Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA) for the National Democratic Convention, support of other National Level Exercises. Also in 2013, the 4th WMD-CST participated in a WMD training exercise with the Office of Secure Transportation (OST) with the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). The exercise underscored the value the CST brings to the state and other federal agencies in the event that a CBRN incident exceeds the capability of local responders to control. For large draw events, the unit provided numerous sweeps and technical support to Atlanta first responders during events such as the Atlanta Falcons 2013 season games at the Georgia Dome and to the Atlanta Police Department for the 2013 Peachtree Road Race. The 4th WMD-CST also provided demonstration and capabilities briefs with local and state first responders at the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Base. The 4th WMD-Civil Support Team can deploy 24 hours a day, 365 days a year when needed to assist the State of Georgia and other FEMA Region 4 states.

Counterdrug Task Force
The Georgia National Guard C ounterdrug Task Force (GANGCDTF) conducts full spectrum law enforcement support operations which bridge the gap between Department of Defense and civil authorities in the fight against illicit drugs and transnational threats to the homeland. The GANGCDTF contributes military support for local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies and community based organizations in addition to their parent combatant commanders. The GANGCDTFâ€™s mission is to reduce the supply and demand for illegal drugs by fostering relationships
and partnering with law enforcement, communit y organizat ions, and school districts. The GANGCDTF is comprised of over 40 members of both the Ga. Army National Guard and Ga. Air National Guard, who assist law enforcement agencies specifically through illegal narcotic and property s e i z u re op e r at i on s , m a r iju a n a eradication missions, information and trend analysis, case support and antidrug classroom instruction. The GANGCDTF contributed to the following drug, property, and currency seizures in FY 2013: 2,349 lbs of cocaine valued in excess of $37.2 million; 2,634 ecstasy pills valued in excess of $65,850; 14,640 lbs of marijuana valued in excess of $43.9 million; 766 lbs of methamphetamine valued in excess of $15.3 million; property in excess of $3.9 million, and

currency in excess of $19.8 million. In addition to the $144 million in drug related contraband, the GANGCDTF assisted in the arrest of 1,185 drug related suspects. Notably, in the fall of 2013 an Airmen attached to Federal Aviation Administration assisted in the tracking and apprehension of four aircraft valued at $1.6 million and the seizure of over 694 lbs of cocaine valued in excess of $11 million in a single operation. Our marijuana eradication efforts in FY 2013 resulted in the detection and destruction of over 9,544 plants valued in excess in $23.8 million. The GANGCDTF continues to perform as one of the most successful Counter Drug Task Forces in the country assisting in nearly $144 million in drug related seizures in FY 2013.
The State Public Affairs Office fulfills the Georgia Departmen of Defense‘s obligation to engage the public, key stake holders and the command in order to both inform internal and external audiences through varied trusted lines of communications means and methods and provide valued community relations in order to set conditions for situational awareness of Ga. DoD activities , capabilities and to garner support for Ga. DoD strategic goals. The Georgia Guard continues to be a DoD leader in online presence and interactivity. Recognized as the owner of one of the premier websites in the entire Department of the Army, The Georgia Guard was also designated as a Keith L. Ware award winner in the Command Blog categor y. The Professiona l Gu ardsman was recognized as the third best in the entire army component to include active, reserve and Guard units in all States and territories. Public Affairs staff members were also recognized for individual contributions in the Keith L. Ware competition. The Georgia Guardsman’s Historic Battle Review column received an honorable mention for individual writing in the article series categor y. Meanwhile, the Georgia Guard Public Affairs Officer contributed writing and imagery to Best Field Newspaper Keith L. Ware award winning Keris Strike newsletter which documented the 560th BFSB’s training mission in Malaysia. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words and it would appear that the public and the media agree as Georgia Guard public affairs crossed a milestone on Veterans Day with the one millionth view of
its high-resolution image collection on Flickr. In just over a year, Flickr site traffic doubled and images of the Georgia National Guard were distributed by media outlets across the nation. Georgia Guard images were instrumental in the National Guard Bureau’s 377th Birthday and Honor their Service campaigns. An image from the return ceremony of ADT-III was even featured on the Country Music Awards. Production of the Georgia Guardsman magazine entered its 60th year in November. Six decades of Georgia Guardsman magazines are maintained on a digital archive accessible through the Georgia Guard’s home page. This resource continues to provide historical context of the Guard’s mission and relevance through the years. Sequestration had a devastating impact on community relations. In the course of 2013, the Georgia Guard was forced to decline support to more than 120 requests for static displays, band appearances, and
guest speakers. These public events are crucial to building the bridge between the military and the public as all too often the general public does not have the opportunity to interact with uniformed military personnel. In lieu of the opportunity to communicate face-to-face, the Georgia Guard concentrated on its social media presence and observed a 21 percent increase in its Facebook reach among key demographics. Already the second-most followed National Guard state on Twitter, the Georgia Guard added more than 3,000 followers – nearly doubling its total from the previous year.

Emerging Missions Na t i o n a l G u a r d s m e n h a v e a unique blend of civilian and military skills. It is this dual, CitizenSoldier nature and temperament of Guardsmen which allows them to be so effective when conducting missions. A Guardsman not only provides combatant commanders with a trained military professional but, as a bonus, Guardsmen bring a myriad of civilian skills and experiences to the battlefield. The National Guard has conducted missions in Eastern Europe, South America, Africa, and Central America for over two decades and is heavily involved in the warfight in Afghanistan.
Agribusiness Development Teams Agribusiness Development Teams (ADTs) are a collaborative effort of the Network Science Center at West Point (NSC), and the National Guard Bureau’s ADT Mission. The Army National Guard has employed the ADT concept successfully in Central America for approximately 20 years. The National Guard Bureau has completed significant planning to provide the Coalition Joint Task Force (CJTF) commander with a resource to favorably impact the agribusiness sector, and the ADT so far has been ver y well received and has been very busy passing along agricultural knowledge, providing security forces (SECFOR), and hard work as well. The Georgia ADTs are composed of Army National Guard Soldiers and Airmen with backgrounds and expertise in various sectors of the
The State Partnership Program, agribusiness development teams and training and reconstruction teams are excellent examples of the National Guard using civilian skills to support the geographical combatant commanders’ theater campaign plans. Helping civilian populations through noncombat initiatives is nothing new to the Georgia National Gu ard. In t he War on Te r ror, Guardsmen have helped Iraqis and Afghans improve infrastructure, advance law enforcement, bring utilities to towns and villages, and enhance relationships with local leaders. For example, as 2013 came to a close, Georgia Guard engineers used their military and engineering skills to make the roads safer in Afghanistan. The 1230th Transportation Company was one of the last Coalition units
in Kunduz, Afghanistan prior to the transfer of authority to the civil authorities in the region. Last year, Guardsmen with the 560th BFSB traveled literally halfway around the world to mentor the Malaysian Army in peacekeeping operations. Three agribusiness development teams have deployed to Afghanistan to teach the farmers t h e re s u s t ai n ab l e a g r i c u ltu r a l techniques. Our 18- year State Partnership Program with the nation of Georgia continues, as that country became the largest non-NATO contributor to the fight in Afghanistan. Georgia’s Guardsmen have proven themselves repeatedly in combat as well as in humanitarian and domestic response missions. They consistently perform at the professional level that the state and nation expects.
agribusiness field and have been formed to provide training and advice to Afghan universities, provincial ministries, and local farmers. ADT members also bring personal ties and relationships that allow them to leverage the assets and expertise of Land Grant Universities (LGUs) and Cooperative Extension Services within their home state. The ADT undertook and completed projects to improve the expertise of Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock (MAIL) employees and the general knowledge of farmers in the area. Specific areas of expertise and experience for the ADT members include agriculture (traditional farming), horticulture (orchards and v i ne yards) , p e st management, irrigation, animal h u s b a n d r y, f o o d p r o c e s s i n g , marketing, agricultural engineering, soil science, ice production, and storage. The Georgia National Guard committed to a three-year obligation
to provide ADTs in Afghanistan. The first of these deployed for southeastern Afghanistan in the spring of 2011. The majority of the service members come from the 201st Regional Support Group and t he 2 6 5 t h R eg i ona l Support Group. In preparation for that deployment, the Georgia Guardsmen have used the new language lab at Clay National Guard center to improve their understanding of the Pashto and Dari languages used in Afghanistan. The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences provided additional agriculture training and technical expertise at the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton. The Ga. ADT III completed the last ADT mission for Georgia in November 2013. They conducted 211 missions across northern Helmand Province to include agriculture, pest management, and veterinary training with district and provincial staff, plus developed an agricultural radio program to reach remote communities.

State Partnership Program with the Country of Georgia The State Partnership Program’s purpose is to establish enduring civilmilitary relationships in order to improve international security and build partnership capacity across all levels of society. In 2013, the partnership’s eighteenth year, this was accomplished in three ways: verifying Georgia’s disaster response capability, preparing Georgian Soldiers to contribute to coalition combat operations, and developing a long-term amputee care capability. “…We cannot count on full success without the establishment and activation of vitally important state institutions… for we strongly believe that your assistance and support of our initiative will undoubtedly strengthen Georgia’s fledgling democratic institutions and will help us become active members of the family of nations.” (Dr. P. Chkheidze, Permanent Representative; Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, Letter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, John M. Shalikashvili, dated August 31, 1994). The Georgia National Guard
supported Exercise Shared Horizons, a multinational disaster response exercise sponsored by US European Command. The exercise focused on expanding Georgia’s disaster response capability towards a regional disaster response framework in the South Caucasus. The success of this exercise, in its final year, verified Georgia’s regional disaster response hegemony. The Country of Georgia is the largest non-NATO contributor of forces to International Security Forces – Afghanistan (ISAF). The successful conclusion of the Georgia Train and Support Team (GTST) mission after three rotations is a testament to the Georgia National Guard’s commitment to the country’s successful participation. Georgian Soldiers continue to own battle space in Afghanistan and Georgia is capable of providing interoperable, effective combat forces for coalition operations. Improved disaster response and combat capabilities enhance Georgia’s global interoperability and are key ingredients for Georgia’s NATO aspirations. Our Georgian partners are now ready to consider exporting these capabilities and, in keeping with Dr. Chkheidze’s wishes, “become active members of the family of nations”.
The State of Georgia also provided project management of the Building Amputee Care – Georgia (BAC-G) program. This program builds Georgia’s ability to provide effective long-term care for amputees. It also improves the effectiveness of the care by minimizing the cost and time to transport soldiers to a care facility outside of Georgia. This, in turn, allows finite resources to focus on care and not administrative and logistical costs of transport and remote administration. This one-of-a-kind program is supported at the highest levels of government and is heralded as a model of success. For 2014, the State Partnership Program will continue to build on past successes while vigilantly seeking out and exploring emerging opportunities to leverage U.S. strategy, develop additional partnerships and enhance global security.

Youth ChalleNGe Academy
The Georgia National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Academies at Fort Stewart in Hinesville and Fort Gordon in Augusta add solid value to the state and to local communities. The YCA program began in September 1993 and has since graduated more than 11,000 at-risk youth into the work force, the military or further educational efforts. This 11,000 number is more impressive when one considers that it translates to more than 10% of the total YCA graduates for the entire country and that Georgia was the third state in the country to reach the 10,000 graduate mark. The academies are designed for 16-18 year-olds who have dropped out of high school without a diploma. Candidates who become residential cadets in the program enter a challenging 22-week intensive general educational development (GED) preparation program, get thorough training in military discipline and structure, attain a grounding in the U.S. Constitution, achieve completion of service learning projects, and have exposure to a multitude of life skills classes. Each academy campus is funded for a yearly target of 425 graduates. Each academy generally exceeds its graduation target in two classes each year, making a total of four classes and reaching a total state goal of 850 graduates per year. In addition, the overall achievement rate for diploma attainment is above 70 percent, which is phenomenal given that each class is 100% comprised of high school dropouts. This percentage of GED attainment is almost double what this age group is able to achieve outside of YCA. More than 55 percent of YCA graduates go on to enter the work force, about 25 percent seek further education, and almost 20 percent enter some branch of military service. In fact, Georgia YCA graduates have attended Emory University; The Citadel; The Law School of Charleston; Georgia State University; Georgia Southern University; East Georgia College; Georgia Military College; Paine College, Augusta Technical College, Savannah Technical College, Brewton-Parker College, and other institutions. YCA graduates have become pilots, medical doctors, attorneys, top NCOs and officers in the military, and many police officers including one police chief. The added value to Georgia and local communities could be summed up with three examples: the thousands of graduates who now can go on to lead productive lives as participatory citizens; the value of the community service performed by YCA cadets in Georgia averaging over half-a million dollars per year; and the final results of a cost analysis done by the Rand Corporation, which concluded that for every dollar invested in the program, there was a return of two dollars and sixty cents.

The Georgia Guard as a Business With more than 15,000 members and a budget of over $690 million, the business of conducting operations in the Georgia Department of Defense is complex. As one of the larger National Guard organizations, the Ga. DoD competes annually for resources and funding with 53 other states and territories to support our operations. For the past five years, the Ga. DoDâ€™s business practices have been recognized as one of the top three performing National Guard organizations within the nation by the National Guard Bureau. In FY 2013, The GaARNG was recognized as the best business model within National Guard Bureau when they won the Army Communities of Excellence Award. Internal assessments are conducted by program managers, senior leaders, in-house auditors and members of our governance management team which includes our inspector general, judge advocate general, internal review division and a federally appointed property and fiscal accountability officer. Accountability for management actions are maintained through the use of the internal management control process as mandated by the Federal Managerâ€™s Integrity Act of 1982. Fiscal accountability is maintained by actions of our federally appointed property and fiscal accountability officer and is achieved through a program budget advisory council, who monitors our annual funding levels versus actual execution of funds. Reviews of our funding levels are conducted by our resource management division and any discrepancies are investigated aggressively. Results from our assessments are reviewed annually by our senior leadership team during our strategic management board. During the board, current organization performance is reviewed and areas for improvement are
identified to accomplish the future vision of the Ga. DoD. During the Strategic Management Board, senior leaders use a formal strategic planning process to determine current organization performance, refine business directions, set missions, visions and values and ensure the organization is postured to meet the expectations of our customers. From the strategic planning process, updated Ga. DoD strategic priorities, goals and objectives are established and are communicated to the department leaders for action plan development and implementation using a five-year strategic planning cycle.
O verall performance of our business practices is assured through the aggressive monitoring of key performance indicators by our senior leaders that provides early indications of our ability to deliver our services and to meet customer expectations. Each major department within the Ga. DoD manages a key performance indicator dashboard and tracks progress of our goals and objectives. Reviews and evaluations of performance are conducted by program managers and process improvement teams to make in-course corrections on programs not meeting expectations. When performance expectations fall
Geogia DoD strategic priorities, goals and objectives are communicated to the workforce through the issuance of annual yearly training/operational guidance by our three primary internal department commanders. Guidance is communicated down through the workforce by subsequent guidance, and policies are issued by subordinate leaders and first line managers to ensure that the overall mission and work of the organization is understood and executed by all employees. The understanding and deployment of this guidance is evaluated by the annual assessments.
short, new processes are identified and implemented to ensure we still accomplish the goals of the Ga. DoD and provide quality service to our customer. The Ga. DoD remains in constant contact with our customers through various forums such as workshops, conferences, direct meetings, and biannual surveys to ensure we continue to not only meet but exceed their expectations. Feedback and assessments from our customer engagements are entered to our annual assessment of processes and considered during our strategic planning processes.

Before there were United States, even before there were 13 colonies, there was the foundation of a National Guard on this continent. In the early 17th century, colonial life was hardscrabble. In addition to the constant threat of the elements, disease, and starvation, early colonists faced danger from French incursions from the north and west, Spanish designs from the south, and competition for land and resources with indigenous peoples. Whereas a clear need for security forces existed, there were neither the funds nor manpower resources available to create a full-time military force to protect the fledgling civilian population. While England maintained a professional army, that force’s base of operations was more than 3,000 miles distant across the Atlantic Ocean and was insufficient to defend the expanding colonies. To resolve the problem, the Massachusetts legislature ordered the establishment of militia companies to serve in three regiments in the towns around Boston. These militia companies were composed of citizens who would make themselves available as a ready response force. The concept of the citizen Soldier as an economical alternative to a
standing army began with that declaration on December 13, 1636, a concept that has equal relevance in the era of persistent conflict. Nearly a century would pass before Lord James Oglethorpe and a party of colonists sailed up the Savannah River to form the colony of Georgia. Oglethorpe was well familiar with the utility of the Citizen-Soldier, and would move swiftly to establish and train the Georgia Militia. It is not an exaggeration to say that the Georgia National Guard was founded with the first English footfalls upon the west bank of the Savannah River. The reasons for Georgia’s founding as a colony were strategic as well as economic. The colony served as a bulwark between the colonies to the north and Spanish and French interests to the south and west. Oglethorpe appreciated the need for a trained militia force and, upon arriving in Savannah in 1732, he initiated the first muster of Georgia’s Citizen-Soldiers. Oglethorpe’s actions would prove prescient when, in 1742, a Spanish force sailed from St. Augustine Florida to St. Simons Island with a force of more than 2,000 troops. To meet the coming threat, Oglethorpe had at his disposal regulars of the 42nd Regiment and the Scot Highlanders to bolster the ranks of his militia forces and indigenous volunteers. On July 7, 1742, Oglethorpe’s scouts sighted an isolated element of Spanish troops near Gully Hole Creek. Oglethorpe personally led an assault that inflicted 30% casualties on the Spanish, including their entire officer corps. In response, the Spanish landed 200 elite Grenadiers who proceeded to march inland in a column formation. As they reached

a marsh bordered by dense woods, the Grenadiers took volley fire from Oglethorpe’s forces. Concealed by trees and gunsmoke, Oglethorpe’s small force routed the numerically superior Spanish at Bloody Marsh. Stung by the two quick ripostes, the Spanish withdrew from St. Simons and would not again seriously contend for Georgian soil. Since the rattle of muskets echoed over that marsh on St. Simons Island, the Georgia National Guard has been a ready and relevant presence in all of our nation’s conflicts. From the American Revolution and the War of 1812 to the great shattering of the American Civil War, volunteer militia units formed the backbone of our nation’s fighting force. In the 20th and 21st centuries, the Georgia Guard has played an increasingly pivotal role on the international stage while maintaining a vital state-side mission. From the era of the smoothbore musket, to the age of Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar Systems, the Guard’s capabilities have increased but our key value remains the same. Like those Citizen-Soldiers of old who had one hand on the plow and one on the musket, our Citizen-Soldiers and -Airmen live and work in our communities and are always prepared to leave home and hearth to protect that which we value. We are YOUR Georgia Guard.

The Boar’s Head Explained The boar’s head on the wreath depicted in the patch worn by Georgia National Guardsmen is an adaptation of the crest authorized by the National Guard for the state of Georgia, approved March 20, 1922. The wild boar symbolizes courage and ferocity. The boar’s head, which stems from the coat of arms of James Oglethorpe – founder of the Colony of Georgia – is also the emblem of hospitality. The red, white and blue colors are the official colors of Georgia.

A Global Presence The Georgia National Guard deployed more than 1,500 Guardsmen overseas in 2013 in furtherance of its mission to provide military forces to combatant commanders. On the ground and in the air, the Georgia National Guard has been a vital part of overseas combat operations contributing more than 16,000 Army and Air Guardsmen to the war fight since the opening months of the War on Terror. Among the Georgia Army National Guard units that supported operations in Afghanistan in 2013 were the 214th Field Artillery Battalion of Elberton,
278th MP Company and 878th Engineers Battalion of Augusta and the 848th Engineer Company of Douglas. Georgia’s Agribusiness Development Team III also contributed military and agricultural capability to assist the Afghan people in 2013. Meanwhile, units of the 116th Air Control Wing and 165th Airlift Wing continued to support missions in multiple combat commands overseas. The Georgia Air National Guard has maintained a constant rate of deployment overseas of personnel and resources. The Georgia Guard also supports overseas training missions designed to build good will and interoperability among partner nations. In 2013, the Georgia Guard supported overseas training missions in Benin, Burundi, Cameroon, Canada, El Salvador,
Germany and South Korea. In 2014, the Georgia National Guard’s State Partnership with the country of Georgia will enter its second decade. The Georgia National Guard’s support for overseas contingency operations will continue in 2014. The 48th Infantry Brigade Combat Team departed on its second Afghanistan deployment in December and the 1230th Transportation Company participated in some of the last missions conducted in Kunduz, Afghanistan. Missions of the Georgia Air National Guard will span the globe from the north Pacific to the South Atlantic. At any given time in the coming year there might well be a Georgia National Guardsman on five continents supporting contingency and training missions.
