From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The New Jersey Army National Guard consists of over 9000 Guardsmen from New Jersey. The Guard is currently engaged in several War on Terror missions. Units have deployed to Iraq, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, Germany and Egypt. The Guard has also deployed to help with the recovery from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

The New Jersey Army National Guard is governed through the New Jersey Department of Military and Veteran's Affairs.

On the home front, the Guard is responsible for Homeland Security tasks in the State of New Jersey.

The New Jersey Army National Guard maintained the 50th Armored Division in the force from 1946 to 1988, and afterwards contributed a New Jersey brigade to the 42nd Infantry Division.
