What do you think the Regular Force and PRes do?
OH! I get it. You want us to have similar organizations as the Mitchigin Moelitcha. Right!
I’ll ignore the slight, and inform you on the subject of State Defense Forces:
The Dick Act of 1903 formally established the National Guard as the militia of the United States, thereby creating the dual mission (federal and state) that we see today. Unfortunately, no provision was made for a state to organize a force to accomplish those state missions should the National Guard be federalized or otherwise unavailable to the Governor.
The National Defense Act of 1916, initially provided statutory authority for the various states to organize a force, in addition to its National Guard, but only when the National Guard is federalized. Twenty-nine states would form such a force, with a combined strength of 79,000 men and women, before this provision of law was repealed following World War I.
In 1940, Congress again passed enabling legislation allowing the states to organize 'State Guard' units. This provision was repealed in July, 1947.
Permanent Federal statutory authority was enacted in 1954, and codified in 1956, to provide for a State Defense force. This law contains several significant provisions, to include (a) allowing states or territories to organize and maintain defense forces in addition to its National Guard, if any, and (b) that in time of peace, a state may maintain no troops other than its National Guard and State Defense Forces.
Currently, twenty-six states, plus the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, have an active State Defense Force. More states are giving this approach serious consideration.
