The purpose of this Guide is to provide a structure for organizing a volunteer military State Defense Force (SDF) unit that State Adjutant Generals (TAG) can activate in support of their National Guard (NG) unit's natural disaster, homeland security and/or community assistance functions. A well-designed SDF would fully integrate with the NG by supplying talent through TAG to the Governor and the citizenry of the State on a voluntary basis that the NG either lacks, is weak in providing or is unable to provide due to a commitment to a Federal mission.
