Army National Guard 375 Year History of Pride, Value, and Vigilance
The National Guard traces the start of its history back to December 13, 1636 as militia for the earliest English colonies in North America . . . 140 years before the fight for America's independence. It is the oldest component of the Armed Forces of the United States and one of the nation's longest, enduring institutions.
