We are your Oklahoma National Guard

The Oklahoma National Guard is a state-based military force composed of Army and Air National Guard units that serve a dual role. When activated for federal missions in a Title 10 status, the units provide trained Soldiers and Airmen to augment the missions of the U.S. Army and Air Force under the president as the commander in chief.

Most of the time, the OKNG is in a Title 32 status under the control of the governor. At the state-level, the governor is the commander in chief, and can call up Guard members to assist during domestic emergencies.

Most Guardsmen are Citizen-Soldiers/Airmen who live and work in communities across the state and serve in the military on a part-time basis (usually one weekend each month and two weeks during the summer).

Our State Mission

The OKNG’s state mission is perhaps the most visible and well known. Over the last few years, Soldiers and Airmen responded to dozens of domestic emergencies including wildfire suppression, floods, civil unrest, support to law enforcement, severe weather and more.

Our Federal Mission

When mobilized for a federal mission, the OKNG serves under a combatant commander and ultimately the president. Oklahoma Guard members have a rich history of answering the nation’s call including multiple deployments to Southwest Asia in support of the Global War on Terrorism. They continue to deploy overseas to support national objectives including providing training and security to coalition partners in Africa, Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and the Indo-pacific region.
