This past year saw the deployment of nearly 5,000 Texas Guardsmen in support of major operations, which include Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, New Dawn and unique operations such as Haitian earthquake support, Afghanistan Agricultural Development teams and Southwest Border Support for the US Customs and Border Patrol (DHS).

The TXARNG provide significant defense support to civil authorities (DSCA), this year responding to flooding caused by Hurricane Alex throughout South Texas from Brownsville to Laredo. In addition, numerous range fires were attacked by the Texas Guard in support of Central Texas firefighters, as were last winters severe snow and ice storms in North Texas. The Texas Guard provided assistance in aviation, medical, logistics, transportation, engineering and communications missions. This past year also saw the Joint Counter Drug Task Force's Texas Challenge Academy graduate over 160 "at risk" teams.

_0013_TX2FY10 funding was adequate to support the Texas Army National Guard units in their training and mobilization efforts. Through the effective use of financial resources available, the TXARNG met its established priorities and continued to support a high level of unit readiness. Through the use of contract employees and temporary help, the Texas USPFO continued to support the mobilization and pre-mobilization activities of the Texas Military Forces for deployments outside the continental United States to support the Global War on Terrorism. Throughout it all, both State and Federal missions were supported and met in executing homeland security taskings.
