The 131st Bomb Wing Missouri Air National Guard is a model for Total Force Integration.
We are more ready than we've ever been. We are fully integrated into the Total Force. The Air National Guard IS the force America needs. U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) l United States Air Force l The National Guard
Thank you for your service.
It was my distinct honor to join General Joseph L. Lengyel as he hosted Croatia's chief of defense staff, Gen. Mirko Sundov, to highlight the security cooperation partnership between Croatia and the Minnesota National Guard.
The Air National Guard is fully integrated into today's warfight. Our Airmen are more ready and resilient than ever and affecting a paramount impact on the mission. U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) l The National Guard l United States Air Force
May the Lord bless the legacy of Lt. Col. Cole as he ascends on to be with his wingmen.
The Air National Guard is fully integrated into the Total Force across unified combatant commands. The amazing team at Al Udeid Air Base is a shining representation of a well-oiled, tactical joint environment. Thank you #TeamDeid!

This C-130J received shrapnel battle damage and was recently repaired. Monday, just days before I touched down at Bagram with my team, three Marines lost their lives in the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. We as a Guard honor those brave individuals and are forever grateful. In the midst of this, the folks serving here are more determined than ever; ready to carry out the mission and protect the values we stand behind. That Esprit de Corp is what you’ll see across ANG digital platforms over the next few days. Now, more than ever, it is important that I take a hands-on approach to ensuring the priorities that I have established with senior leaders are being carried out down range. I can tell you, the force is more ready than it has ever been. United States Air Force l U.S. Marine Corps l U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)
I recently traveled to visit Air National Guardsmen supporting the United State’s long-standing relationship with Jordan. The ANG has long contributed to Total Force efforts across the Department of Defense, and are key to building and sustaining partnerships and strengthening coalitions around the world. I am so proud of the work they are doing, side by side with Jordan Armed Forces, in support of mutual objectives and peace-keeping efforts in the region.

Congratulations to the 156th Wing - Puerto Rico Air National Guard on their designation for such important missions!
The Air National Guard is a ready force, actively supporting combatant commands around the globe. From aircrew and maintainers, to services and personnel, our highly skilled, highly trained, Citizen Airmen are integrated with joint and coalition forces around the world, serving as an essential component of the Total Force. 127th Wing l U.S. Air Forces Central Command l United States Air Force l 175th Wing l Air Combat Command
More than 3 million Americans served with honor and valor & more than 58,000 men and women lost their lives. Thank you to every Vietnam veteran. The Air National Guard salutes you, not just on this day of observance, but everyday. #NationalVietnamWarVeteransDay
The relationships that are facilitated through The National Guard State Partnership Program allow us to expand our global reach much further than we could on our own. The military to military exchanges between our partners go far beyond just training, but are enriching to our Guard culture. With 76 established partnerships in the program, we are committed to all of our cooperative relationships. U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)
Readiness, revitalization, modernization. The National Defense Strategy is the roadmap to enhancing the power of the 21st Century Airmen. As dual-hatted, Air National Guardsmen, you should identify directly with each stage of the strategy because you are integral to the realization of each stage. Can you connect to the bigger picture?
On this National Medal of Honor Day, the valiant journey of Capt. Lance P. Sijan, the first Air Force Academy graduate to receive the Medal of Honor, comes to mind. The heroism above and beyond the call of duty of Sijan, and all who have received this honor, is both humbling and inspiring to service members everywhere.

Today the 157th Air Refueling Wing sent off their last KC-135 tanker. New Hampshire Senator Margaret C. Hassan and I attended the ceremony at the 157th for their last flight with the oldest aircraft in Air Force inventory. #Salute
WATCH NOW: We’re sending off our last KC-135 tanker, the oldest aircraft in Air Force inventory. Caution: it may get loud! United States Air Force Air National Guard
Air National Guard Executive Director, Daniel Bishop, joined me at the very first Air National Guard Public Affairs Workshop, being held at I.G. Brown Training and Education Center, McGhee Tyson Airport Knoxville, TN, where we had the opportunity to speak with Public Affairs professionals from around the ANG. It was great to have a two-way conversation with the Airmen that expertly tell the ANG story, allowing us to build relationships among our communities and highlight the capabilities that we train hard to maintain.
Thank you to all of the members of the Connecticut Air National Guard who attended a social at the Air National Guard House as a part of their State of the State update. Connecticut's state partner from Uruguay also attended the social. It was an honor to host you all and hear about the exciting happenings within your state. Air National Guard photo by Master Sgt.
