The New York Guard is a force of uniformed volunteers, organized as a military unit, who augment the New York National Guard during state emergencies. They provide administrative and logistics support to the National Guard.
New York Guard members do not have a federal military role and do not deploy outside the state. Members usually train in a volunteer status and are paid when they are placed on state duty during emergencies.
