Guard PhotoThe North Carolina Army National Guard (NCARNG) continued its commitment to the Global War on Terrorism in FY06 while simultaneously contributing to the security at home supporting Operation Jump Start on the Mexican border and supporting state civil authorities during relief operations.

The year began with the deployment of the 505th Engineer Battalion, followed by smaller command and control, maintenance, and personnel units supporting everything from operations at mobilization stations to operating bases in Kuwait and Iraq with transportation and convoy security. Throughout the year the NCARNG had anywhere from 1,400 to 1,800 Soldiers on active duty. Although it was a light year for hurricanes, Tropical Storm Ernesto caused the mobilization of several hundred North Carolina Army National Guard members to support coastal area citizens.

NCARNG family programs continued to support the families of Soldiers during the “Operation Kids on Guard” youth program which introduced the children of deployed guard members to each other and taught them what it meant to be a citizen-Soldier.

North Carolina Army National Guard units across the state continued to transition to new force structures, bringing about the biggest changes since the deactivation of the 30th Infantry Division in 1972.

Guard PhotoFY06 funding was adequate to meet the needs of the North Carolina Army National Guard. However, limitations and restrictions surrounding sustainment, restoration, and modernization funds were challenging. Approximately 20% of the state’s units were mobilized when the fiscal year began, with most returning throughout the year. North Carolina also led the way by supporting the southwest border patrol mission, instituted late in the fiscal year. National Guard appropriations for personnel and operations and maintenance were resourced at $62,400,000 and $81,700,000, respectively. This level of funding allowed the NCARNG to execute its training plans, send Soldiers to required schools, fund tuition assistance programs, pay overhead costs, and meet the needs of both mobilizing and returning units.
