The Minnesota National Guard’s enduring goal is to provide agile and resilient Citizen-Soldiers and -Airmen to fulfill any federal, state or community demand. To reach this goal the Minnesota National Guard must be successful in two key areas: providing ready military units whenever and wherever needed and integrating the mutual needs and requirements of our many important stakeholders with our own capabilities.
Providing ready units achieves our greatest obligation to the state of Minnesota and the United States. We must effectively prepare our units throughout all phases of the readiness cycle to ensure we are ready when called upon to support our nation overseas or at home. In order to provide this force, we must have the right mix of personnel and force structure for current and anticipated missions.
Developing and maintaining external relationships that add value to the Minnesota National Guard benefits our Soldiers and Airmen by providing the resources needed to sustain quality of life during periods of deployment and redeployment.
To accomplish these objectives, we focus on six priorities. The priorities complement each other and work together to strengthen our organization. Each of these priorities are integrated into everything we do throughout the force.
- Fielding a competent ready force
- Maintaining an optimal force structure
- Cyber security and response
- Develop sustainable infrastructure
- Service members and their Families
- Diversity of the force
