About

With a proud lineage of serving as the state’s militia, the South Dakota National Guard finds its origins dating back to 1862 as part of the Dakota Territory. Since that time, SDNG units have served in nearly every major U.S. war or conflict since the Civil War, while concurrently responding to domestic crises here in the state.

The National Guard is the only military component that holds a dual-mission consisting of both federal and state roles. The federal mission is to maintain trained and equipped units available for prompt mobilization for war or a national emergency. At the state level, the governor reserves the ability, under the Constitution, to call up members of the National Guard during times of natural disasters or domestic emergencies. This gives the governor the broad authority to use National Guard assets to support civil authorities in domestic requirements; from protecting lives and property to maintaining peace during civil disturbances.

The Guard is no longer a strategic reserve to the active component, but an operational force directly integrated into active-duty deployments and missions. The force structure of the SDNG is designed to meet the needs of the future force; giving the Guard an enhanced capability to respond in times of emergencies and natural disasters and to support overseas contingency operations.

Continued support and investment in the National Guard ensures that these Citizen-Soldiers and Aitrmen remain ready to serve in any capacity when called upon. An investment in the Guard is an investment in our communities across the state. The National Guard is also a cost-effective option for national defense, rapidly providing trained Soldiers and Airmen to augment the active component when called, but at a third of the cost. 

Today’s National Guard remains strong with nearly 4,200 Soldiers and Airmen available to execute its missions. The SDNG resides in 22 communities but is made up of members from nearly every corner of the state.
