The New York State Militia
Militia
was active by the mid-1880s. In 1889 a group of wealthy equestrian enthusiasts were incorporated into the State Militia
Militia
as Squadron A. Their heritage is carried on today by the 101st Cavalry Regiment. New York Army National Guard[edit] The New York Army National Guard
Army National Guard
was formally created in 1906. The Militia Act of 1903
Militia Act of 1903
organized the various state militias into the present National Guard system. The New York Army National Guard despatched elements of the 27th Infantry
Infantry
Division, and the 42nd Infantry
Infantry
Division to both world wars. Douglas MacArthur
Douglas MacArthur
served as an officer and brigade commander in the 42nd Infantry
Infantry
Division during the First World War. During the Cold War, the NY ARNG included the 102nd Artillery Brigade (Air Defense), part of Army Air Defense Command, which in 1962 comprised 1-245, 2-209, 1-244, and 1-212 Artillery, equipped with a variety of missile systems.[2] For much of the final decades of the twentieth century, National Guard personnel typically served "One weekend a month, two weeks a year", with a portion working for the Guard in a full-time capacity. In 1993, the 1st Battalion, 107th Infantry, was deactivated as part of nationwide force structure reductions.[3] The 107th designation was reassigned to the former 205th Support Group, New York Army National Guard, creating the 107th Support Group. Twenty-first century[edit]

Since the 9/11 Attacks on New York City, New York

Army National Guard Soldiers were brought back into force in 2003 to help in the "Ice Storm". Soon after that, they were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in support of the Global War on Terror, as well as faced an increase in domestic missions. The current forces formation plans of the US Army call for the typical National Guard unit (or National Guardsman) to serve one year of active duty for every three years of service. More specifically, current United States
United States
Department of Defense policy is that no Guardsman will be involuntarily activated for a total of more than 24 months (cumulative) in one six-year enlistment period. This policy was due to change on 1 August 2007; the new policy stated that soldiers will be given 24 months between deployments of no more than 24 months. However, individual states have differing policies. The 2nd Battalion, 108th Infantry
Infantry
Regiment deployed to Iraq in 2004 along with the 105th MP Company. In 2004/2005 the 1st Battalion, 69th Infantry, along with Delta Company 1st Battalion, 101st Cavalry, served in Iraq; eventually assuming responsibility for security on the Baghdad International Airport Road. In 2004 the Division Headquarters and division base units of the 42nd Infantry
Infantry
Division, the "Rainbow" Division, were mobilized for service in Iraq. The 42nd Infantry
Infantry
Division, took over responsibility for the area known as Multi-National Division North Central—the provinces of Salah Ah Din, Diyala, At Tamamim (or Kirkuk Province) and As Sulymaniah Province from the 1st Infantry
Infantry
Division on February 14, 2005. The 42nd Combat Aviation Brigade
42nd Combat Aviation Brigade
also deployed to Iraq during this period. At one point during 2005 almost 3,500 members of the New York Army National Guard were serving in Iraq. Task Force Liberty, led by the 42nd Infantry
Infantry
Division, comprised 23,000 Soldiers including two Active Duty Army Brigades of the 3rd Infantry
Infantry
Division, the 278th Regimental Combat Team of the Tennessee Army National Guard, and the 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team from the Pacific Northwest. About 25 NY ARNG soldiers deployed to Iraq in Sep 2006 as part of the 36th Combat Aviation Brigade. In 2008 the 27th Brigade Combat Team was mobilized with the role of training Afghan National Army and Police forces in Afghanistan (Task Force Phoenix). The 2nd Squadron, 101st Cavalry deployed with the 27th BCT. Members of the 2nd Battalion, 108th Infantry, and 1st Battalion 69th Infantry, filled out vacancies in the deploying units. The brigade returned late 2008. The 3rd Battalion, 142nd Aviation (Assault Helicopter) deployed to Iraq in late summer of 2008 in support of Multi-National Corps – Iraq, as did the 133rd Quartermaster Company. The battalion returned to New York in the spring of 2009. The 27th Brigade Combat Team has received a notification of sourcing and is expected to again deploy to Afghanistan in February 2012.[4] The HHD/107th Support Group has recently been reorganized and redesignated several times and is now the 53rd Army Digital Liaison Team.
