The National Guard Bureau recently revised the 2011 National Guard Regulation 10-4 which specifies the “National Guard Interaction with State Defense Forces.”. The policy change is good news for State Defense Force soldiers as it allows the National Guard to better work with the State Defense Forces.
Particular elements of the revised directive that are of interest are:
“NG will consider the SDF as any other State entity with respect to preparation for and participation in domestic or civil support operations, and the related use of Federal equipment”
“Ensure that any sharing of Federal resources is IAW guidance from the CNGB, and the U.S. Property and Fiscal Officer (USPFO) in the State.”
