The National Guard, America's citizen soldiers
The National Guard is a centuries-old military network that has served crucial roles in several US security operations, testing its mettle in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as on riot-plagued streets back home. Its Missouri units were deployed into Ferguson to help quell unrest that erupted after a grand jury did not indict a white police officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in August. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon said the National Guard presence in the Ferguson area would triple to 2,200, with the citizen soldiers tasked with keeping the peace and securing public safety following a night of racially-charged violent protests. Whether rushing to help the hurricane-battered US Gulf Coast in 2005, conducting counter-terrorism or peacekeeping operations abroad, or facing off with deadly consequences against unarmed anti-war demonstrators in 1970, the National Guard has served important but often controversial roles.
