The West Virginia Army National Guard (WVARNG) is the United States Army component of the West Virginia National Guard. It has 38 units and activities stationed in 22 counties throughout West Virginia and overseas.[1] The WV ARNG currently has units supporting operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kosovo.

  • (b) State Mission - Provide organized, trained and equipment units to protect life and property and to preserve peace, order and public safety when ordered by the governor; and
