Colorado Army National Guard
Member since 2010 

The Colorado Army National Guard is nearly 3600 Soldiers strong and growing all the time. The units in the state vary from the most modern, cutting-edge high-tech units such as Space Support to classic, hardcore, hard-charging Special Forces, Artillery and Infantry. The bulk of the units are along the Front Range but our armories in the outlying smaller towns in Colorado are where true community based interaction takes place. In addition to the Soldiers, there are approximately one hundred State employees of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA). The mission of the Colorado National Guard is to provide its communities, state and nation a ready, reliable, essential and accessible military force, fully equipped for national defense and support to civil authorities by providing our communities, state, and nation a ready military force for national defense and state emergency response.
