The North Carolina State Guard Association is an unarmed – all-volunteer – service organization dedicated to assisting our fellow citizens during emergency situations or natural disasters. We are registered with North Carolina and the Federal Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. No salaries are paid to leaders or members of the NC State Guard. Members purchase their own uniforms and equipment. All donated monies are used for the purchase of unit equipment or training.
We take a solemn oath to support our National and State elected leadership, defend the US Constitution, and abide by the following regulations:
We also pledge to serve when called upon by the Governor in the NC State Defense Militia. We do not discriminate as to race, sex, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, or physical disability. All promotions are earned through training and merit and are based on the needs of our organization.
As a state militia, we embody the traditions of the citizen militia which has served our country and North Carolina since colonial times. State militias are recognized in Federal Law [32 U.S.C. s.109], but the existence of a state Militia or State Defense Force remains at the discretion of each state government. The North Carolina State Code [Article 127A as amended in June 2011] authorizes the existence of a State Defense Militia.
