ANG Readiness Center Mission

The mission of the Air National Guard Readiness Center is to provide resources, policy oversight, guidance and support to ensure 90 ANG wings and all Geographically Separated Units across 54 states, territories and the District of Columbia are trained and equipped across the full spectrum of operations (homeland and global).

ANGRC History

TheThe ANGRC traces its roots to the Vietnam War, during which the Air Guard provided airlift support to American forces in Southeast Asia. By 1972, growing global Air Guard responsibilities led to the establishment of the Air National Guard Air Operations Center (AOC) IN 1974. In an effort to ensure a separation of operational activities between the ANG and NGB staff, the ANG Support Center was created on Andrews AFB, Maryland in 1976. In 1992 the ANG Support Center was re-designated as the Air National Guard Readiness Center (ANGRC).
