The Nebraska Army National Guard
We have over 80 units and detachments throughout the state of Nebraska, stretching east to west from Nebraska City to Scottsbluff and north to south from Wayne to McCook. There are approximately 3,500 Nebraska Army National Guard Soldiers, most of whom serve part-time one weekend a month. These Citizen-Soldiers are parents, brothers, sisters, children, neighbors, friends, and students. Many of them work alongside Nebraskans as business associates, doctors, farmers, firefighters, nurses, technicians, volunteers, and other occupations. Members of the Nebraska Army National Guard have represented our state honorably as they have been deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Kosovo, Bosnia, Macedonia, El Salvador, Honduras, and many other countries, while additionally serving stateside to protect our communities from floods, fires, tornadoes and any other threats concerning homeland security. These Guardsmen and women have joined for many reasons including service to country and community, adventure, training, and education assistance. We encourage those who desire to participate in these things to take the challenge, and become a teammate amongst the many serving in the Nebraska Army National Guard.
