About the Agency

The Department of Military Affairs plans, coordinates, maintains situational awareness, and employs forces for homeland security and homeland defense in order to respond to any incidents within the Commonwealth and, on order of the Governor, will assist civil authorities in protecting life and property, preserving peace, maintaining order and public safety, and relieving suffering.

The agency is comprised of the Virginia National Guard and the Virginia Defense Force.

The premier response capability in the state, prepared to support every call to duty from the Commonwealth and the nation, led by a balanced, integrated joint team that is stable, adaptive, and measured by the success of our small units and their leaders.
