What is arkansas national guard?

Arkansas National Guard

The Arkansas National Guard comprises both Army (Arkansas Army National Guard) and Air (Arkansas Air National Guard) components. The Constitution of the United States specifically charges the National Guard with dual federal and state missions. In fact, the National Guard is the only United States military force empowered to function in a state status. Those functions range from limited actions during non-emergency situations to full scale law enforcement of martial law when local law enforcement officials can no longer maintain civil control. The National Guard may be called into federal service in response to a call by the President or Congress.

Famous quotes containing the words guard, arkansas and/or national:

    Standing navies, as well as standing armies, serve to keep alive the spirit of war even in the meek heart of peace. In its very embers and smoulderings, they nourish that fatal fire, and half-pay officers, as the priests of Mars, yet guard the temple, though no god be there.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    ...I am who I am because I’m a black female.... When I was health director in Arkansas ... I could talk about teen-age pregnancy, about poverty, ignorance and enslavement and how the white power structure had imposed it—only because I was a black female. I mean, black people would have eaten up a white male who said what I did.
    Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933)

    But for the national welfare, it is urgent to realize that the minorities do think, and think about something other than the race problem.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)
