About Colorado Army National Guard

Since 1860, the Colorado National Guard has served our communities, state and nation in times of peace and times of strife and always as the first military responder during state emergencies. With an economic impact of more than $240 million, the Colorado National Guard is a diverse, community-based force of more than 5,500 Citizen-Soldiers and Citizen-Airmen from all walks of life—college students, single parents, doctors, pilots, police officers, attorneys, teachers and artisans, to name a few. These service members commit one weekend per month—and at least two weeks per year—to train and polish skills for missions both during peacetime and war. Between those military commitments, they live and work in communities across Colorado. The National Guard is unique compared to other reserve force components because of its dual state and federal missions and because more than two-thirds of our members serve part-time. The National Guard supports both our state and nation to provide trained, well-equipped men and women to augment the active force during national contingencies or war, and provide state assistance during disasters, both natural and manmade. The National Guard provides a broad range of capabilities at a cost of only five percent of the total base budget of the Department of Defense. When not mobilized for national defense, the Colorado National Guard serves under the command of the Governor through his appointed Adjutant General. The Adjutant General of Colorado is a gubernatorial cabinet member and also serves as the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.
