History and organization
The Nevada Office of the Military provides military organization for the Nevada National Guard, which consists of the state's Army Guard and Air Guard. The Nevada National Guard is the organized military force of the state, except when ordered into federal service.
The governor is the commander-in-chief of the Nevada National Guard and appoints the adjutant general. Since June 2009, Brigadier General William R. Burks has served as Nevada's adjutant general under Governor Jim Gibbons.
Under the direction of the governor, the adjutant general is responsible for the supervision of all matters pertaining to the administration, morale, discipline, mobilization, organization and training of the Nevada National Guard. Colonel Terrance Fornof is the commander of the Air Guard.
The Nevada Air National Guard includes the 152nd Airlift Wing (High Rollers) and 152nd Intelligence Squadron in Reno and Detachment 1 in Las Vegas as well as personnel assigned to Joint Force Headquarters in Carson City. The primary mission of the Nevada Air National Guard is to provide cargo and personnel transportation, aerial reconnaissance and imagery analysis from a variety of camera and satellite systems located throughout the world.
Traditional guardsmen in the Nevada National Guard train one weekend per month and 15 days a year in their respective military career fields. Nevada’s traditional guardsmen are supported by 474 full-time federal technicians, state employees and 314 Active Guard and Reserve personnel stationed at various locations around the state.
The state's Guard may be ordered by the governor to serve the state by protecting persons or property from either man-made or natural disasters and suppressing or preventing riot, insurrection, invasion or violence.
Overall, the Nevada Air National Guard maintains a presence in three of the state’s 17 counties with a 64-acre (260,000 m2) site on the southwest corner of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport in Reno, a detachment on Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas and at Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs. About 65 Nevada Guard airmen work at the southern-Nevada detachment that began operation in 2005.
The 92nd Civil Support Team for Weapons of mass destruction, a joint force unit comprising 22 soldiers and airmen headquartered in Las Vegas, began operation in late 2004 and promises to be an important resource and asset to the state should a domestic chemical, biological or nuclear event occur.
