Indiana Guard Reserve

When the Indiana Guard Reserve was created by the Indiana State Legislature in 1961, one of its central duties was to be the management of Indiana National Guard Armories in the event of a Federal deployment of the Indiana National Guard, such as was seen during World War II.  While the current enlistment levels of the Indiana National Guard tend to minimize the need for such management, IGR soldiers continue to train to maintain the skills necessary to support the Indiana National Guard in this manner.

Should the need arise, and the National Guard be called away to serve and protect the citizens and interests of the United States, the armories of the State of Indiana will remain secure under the skilled management of the Indiana Guard Reserve.
