About TXSGTexas State Guard
The Texas State Guard, along with the Texas Army National Guard and Texas Air National Guard, is one of the three military branches comprising the Texas Military Department. The Texas State Guard provides Texas with support in-state missions, from emergency and disaster response to border security and community service. No matter the need, the Texas State Guard stands ready to serve--they are “Texans Serving Texas.”
The mission of the Texas State Guard (TXSG) is to provide mission-ready military forces to assist state and local authorities in times of state emergencies; to conduct homeland security and community service activities under the umbrella of Defense Support to Civil Authorities, and to augment the Texas Army National Guard and Texas Air National Guard as required.
From the volunteer units who fought for Texas Independence to the Travis Guards who provided home protection for citizens in the newly formed Texas Republic, to our current organization supporting state and local authorities, the Texas State Guard has a long and proud history of serving the citizens of Texas and remain Equal to the Task.
Headquartered at Camp Mabry in Austin, Texas, the TXSG functions as an organized state militia under the authority of Title 32 of the U.S. Code and Chapter 437 of the Texas Government Code.
