The Missouri State
Guard is organized into four brigades, each with several Battalions. They are
composed of Military Police, Infantry, Signal Corps, Chaplain Corps and other Military Occupational Specialties. The Commander-in Chief is the Governor of Missouri. Day-to-day the State Guard is commanded by the State Guard Commanding General.
George Washington stated the basic principle of civilian service
to our country when he said: “Every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government owes not only a portion of
his property, but even of his personal service in defense of it.”
