Guard PhotoFY09 was the second busiest year for mobilizations since September 11, 2001 for the North Carolina Army National Guard (NCARNG). With the mobilization and deployment of the 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team (HBCT), the 1-130th Armed Reconnaissance Battalion (Apache), and a host of other large and small units, it was the busiest since 2004. At the end of the fiscal year, 4,040 Soldiers were on federal duty (out of an end-strength of 10,121). Additionally, the NCARNG continued its commitment to supporting North Carolina’s civil authorities with rapid reaction force training and reward staging and onward integration training with a variety of National Guard, state, and local emergency providers.

This year, the 30th HBCT executed a contiguous training plan from December into February, prior to entering federal duty. North Carolina had the only National Guard brigade combat team to deploy and execute full-spectrum counter-insurgency missions for the second time. The bulk of the mobilizations were for Iraq, however, the 382nd Public Affairs Detachment ran the media operations center for the 101st Airborne Division in Bagram, Afghanistan. Another major subordinate command, the 449th Theater Aviation Brigade Headquarters, conducted command and control operations of aviation units in Iraq.

The NCARNG added a new major subordinate command to its force structure, elevating the 139th Regiment (Combat Arms) North Carolina Military Academy (NCMA) to that level. At the end of the fiscal year, the NCMA was training National Guard, reserve, and active duty Soldiers in a wide variety of combat and combat support military occupational specialties.

The North Carolina Army National Guard family programs continued to support the families of Soldiers by operating federally-funded Family Assistance Centers and launching a pilot project to locate them in storefront locations to better serve military families.

Guard PhotoFunding received for FY09 was adequate to meet the needs of the North Carolina Army National Guard. Approximately 3% of the state’s Soldiers were mobilized when the fiscal year began. National Guard appropriations for personnel and operations and maintenance were resourced at $116,100,625 and $107,473,400, respectively. This level of funding allowed the NCARNG to fully execute its training plans, send Soldiers to required schools, fund tuition-assistance programs, and meet the extensive needs to support the additional funding requirements of the 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team, which mobilized in February of 2009. At the close of FY09, approximately 40% of the state’s Army personnel were mobilized. Funding of $24,812,670 from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was received to construct a new state headquarters facility.
