Our Organization

The NCNG is a military force comprised of citizen Soldiers and Airmen sworn to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the state of North Carolina.  We trace our heritage back to the 1663 Carolina Charter granting authority to "levy, muster and train men."  In recent years, the NCNG has reshaped itself in accordance with guidance from the Chief, National Guard Bureau and the departments of the Army and Air Force.  This process, known as "Transformation," has changed the NCNG's focus and structure from that of a strategic reserve to a modern, operational force.  As requirements evolve, the NCNG continues to posture itself for success in meeting future mission requirements, while accomplishing current missions, by remaining relevant and ready.  It consists of a diverse workforce with varied backgrounds, education and perspectives.

Our Mission

The North Carolina National Guard provides a Ready Team  of Citizen Soldiers and Airmen who are Always Ready and Always There to Protect and preserve the lives and property of North Carolina citizens, Defend our Nation and Secure our American way of life.

The Campaign Plan is developed in order to communicate a clear command mision that will guide the North Carolina National guard’s (NCNG) future operations. By doing so, we will achieve a key fundamental essential to leading and guiding our Organization through the dynamic times we will surely experience in the future – Unity of Effort. The understanding and permeating of this vision throughout our Force, as well as, to all of our supporters will allow all of us to shape an environment that enables our successful accomplishment in any and all assigned missions to any part of the world – we are an expeditionary force
