North Dakota Army National Guard
The North Dakota Army National Guard maintains 26 armories, and is present in 26 communities.
During 1999 the NDARNG had an impressive year involving activities that spanned the globe. Members provided fresh water to base camps in the Dominican Republic and completed engineer projects in Korea and Germany. Closer to home, the Guard enhanced the quality of life in rural areas through numerous community projects. The Regional Training Institute at Camp Grafton continued to be a premiere training site for both active and reserve component forces.
After severe storms and continued flooding, NDARNG soldiers stood ready to assist in a federal disaster declaration that covered 42 counties and 4 Indian reservations. Members assisted in providing emergency power and removing debris to expedite the flow of waters in the Devils Lake Basin.
A state sponsored tuition assistance program for North Dakota Guard members afforded over 900 applicants the opportunity to pursue their education. Distance Learning Centers in Guard facilities will connect communities with colleges across the state to offer remote learning opportunities never before possible.
North Dakota also celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Spanish American War and the Philippine Insurrection. A display traveled across the state, highlighting 10 members of the First North Dakota Volunteer Infantry and Young's Scouts who received the Congressional Medal of Honor.
