I am currently serving in the Texas State Guard, 547th Air Support Group, 5th Air Wing, based at Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base in Houston. I am a Senior Airman. We are an Air Reserve unit, which requires one weekend per month of service. I take pride in serving the great State of Texas. The Texas Military Department is composed of the three branches of the military in the state of Texas. These branches are the Texas Army National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, and the Texas State Guard. All three branches are administered by the state Adjutant General, an appointee of the Governor of Texas, and fall under the command of the Governor. The mission of the Texas State Guard is to provide mission-ready military forces to assist state and local authorities in times of state emergencies, and to conduct homeland security and community service activities under the umbrella of Defense Support to Civil Authorities.
