About the Arkansas National Guard

Since 1804 the Arkansas National Guard has proudly served as a community-based, combat-proven force of citizen Soldiers and Airmen. Over 8,600 men and women continue to achieve greatness as we move forward in the global war on terrorism, protect our homeland and serve as leaders in our communities as a competent, capable and diverse force.

Arkansas National Guard Soldiers and Airmen are trained professionals. We are well-equipped with warfighting and disaster response skills to ensure mission success, whether on foreign soil or performing civil support missions here in Arkansas. The Arkansas National Guard continues to prove we have the best Soldiers and Airmen in the nation.

The Arkansas National Guard has four major training sites. The Army National Guard at Robinson Maneuver Training Center (Camp Robinson) in North Little Rock, and Fort Chaffee Joint Maneuver Training Center near Ft. Smith, and the Air National Guard at Ebbing Air National Guard Base in Ft. Smith and Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville.

Community Support and Outreach

The Arkansas National Guard has a presence throughout the entire state of Arkansas where our Soldiers and Airmen serve.

Through active community support programs the Arkansas National Guard strives to be a good neighbor and community partner. The Guard, its Soldiers and its Airmen, are extensively involved in local community organizations and often participate in and/or support the events they sponsor, but training and mission requirements always come first.

What types of support activities are available?

Preferred activities for support are those which stimulate patriotism, promote public understanding of national security issues or foster public appreciation of our military or national heritage.
Examples of the most common types of support the Arkansas National Guard may be requested to provide are:

• Arkansas National Guard’s 106th Army Band
• Arkansas National Guard Color Guard
• Static Equipment Displays (non-aviation)
• Static Equipment Displays (aviation)

This list is not all-inclusive — there may be other activities the Arkansas National Guard could support if requested and if they would enhance the Arkansas Guard’s public image.
