From Drugs to Bugs: The National Guard's Expanding Role in the National Security Strategy   [open pdf - 827KB]

"The National Guard continues to expand its role in the National Security Strategy with increased involvement in Counter Drug operations and the mission to defend the Homeland. This research discusses the National Guard's involvement as a Department of Defense Agency in two of the Nation's biggest concerns, the insidious drug problem and the Asymmetrical Threat of Weapons of Mass Destruction use within the borders of the United States. The status of the National Guard under the individual Governor's control and the natural link between the military and civilian agencies provide a cost effective means to assist in countering the drug problem and reacting to a weapons of mass destruction attack."
