About Us

VISION:

The Guard is America’s Army. We are community based but with capabilities that stretch worldwide. The 373-year tradition that we enjoy as Guard members is, in every sense, as relevant today as during colonial times.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION:

The Utah National Guard has a unique dual mission that encompasses support to our Nation and to the State of Utah as follows:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FEDERAL MISSION:

Maintain properly trained and equipped units available for prompt mobilization for war, national emergency or as otherwise needed.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STATE MISSION:

Provide trained and disciplined forces for domestic emergencies or as otherwise required by state law.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES:

It is our goal to have the finest National Guard units in the Nation in the Utah National Guard. Each Utah Guard member has the goal to be the best officer, noncommissioned officer, Soldier or Airman possible.

We will continue to build on the tradition that when units of the Utah National Guard arrive, the “First Team” is taking the field.
