Curious about our vests? The black vest is an identification vest that we normally wear during domestic support operations, like 4th of July, COVID response, and the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington. It has our name, rank and service plus the DC flag to show our pride in our city. It’s different from the camouflage vest just like this mission is different from other missions we’ve done in the past. This week we are working in support of the police and fire/EMS on road closures and at Metro stops. For more info on our mission see

D.C. National Guardsmen to provide traffic control and crowd management during D.C. demonstrations

WASHINGTON – The District of Columbia National Guard (DCNG) is activating several hundred personnel today to support the city government during expected demonstrations this week.

Capital guardsmen have been requested by Mayor Muriel Bowser and Dr. Christopher Rodriguez, director of the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, on behalf of the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and D.C. Fire and Emergency Services.

Approximately 340 personnel will support the city government Jan. 5 to 7 by providing crowd control at several Metro stations and assist police with street closures at multiple intersections to provide safety in and around pedestrian areas. Capital guardsmen will also support D.C. Fire and Emergency Management Services with specially trained Civil Support Team personnel. Guardsmen are prepared to respond to augment the main missions, should additional personnel be required.

“At the request of Mayor Muriel Bowser, the District of Columbia National Guard is in a support role to the Metropolitan Police Department which will enable them to provide a safe environment for our fellow citizens to exercise their first amendment right to demonstrate,” said Maj. Gen. William J. Walker, Commanding General of the D.C. National Guard. He added, “Our main mission is augmenting select traffic control points and metro stations identified by MPD.”

The D.C. National Guard remains strong with soldiers and airmen available to execute its requested missions. Capital guardsmen reside within the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia, and are proud to be from the communities they protect and serve.

Voices of the Veterans from DC Army National Guard
▪️
This week, we would like to honor and highlight retired DC Army National Guard soldiers who have served both their Country and Community, sacrificed, and shown patriotism while making significant contributions to the foundation of the DC Army National Guard.
▪️
Meet SFC Carol E. Bryant
Military Occupational Specialty (MOS): Automated Logistical Specialist; Military Police;
Data Telecommunications Switching Center Specialist; Personnel Records Specialist; Human Resources Specialist
▪️
“I retired from the 74th Troop Command as the Detachment Sergeant; worked as the Readiness NCO for the 104th Maintenance Company. I also worked as an Executive Administrative Assistant to a One Star General in the 260th Military Police Command. While with the 115th MASH unit, deployed to the Middle East Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. While working as a Military Police, I was assigned to the 471st MP Company, 273rd Military Police Company and 171st Battalion. I am still serving as a Civilian for the Department of Defense and will retire as a civil servant. My advice to young and future warriors is to get qualified in more than one field. You will learn many valuable skills and life lessons that will not only help you while in the Military but in Life. Be versatile and never stop learning. Take all of the leadership courses you can. Gain knowledge that is going to take you where you want to go. I don’t regret my service in the DC Army National Guard. I served and will be a soldier for life.”

SFC Bryant retired in 2006 with 24 years of service. Can we get a Hooah!!??!
