38th Infantry Division (Mechanized) (ARNG)
Definition/Scope: The Indiana National Guard is a joint-force organization with 65 Army National Guard installations around the state, and facilities at Camp Atterbury Joint Maneuver Training Center and Muscatatuck Urban Training Center. Additionally, there are two Air Wings, the 181st Intelligence Wing based in Terre Haute, and the 122nd Air Wing based in Ft. Wayne. The Joint Forces Headquarters is located at Stout Field on the west side of Indianapolis. The Indiana Army and Air National Guard are reserve components of the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force. In its "state" role, the National Guard assists local law enforcement agencies during emergencies at the direction of the governor. The distribution of soldiers, equipment and facilities across the state allows the National Guard to respond quickly and efficiently to emergencies statewide. This dual federal-state mission is unique to the U.S. military and sets the National Guard apart from any other reserve component. The 38th ID has the following subordinate units: 2nd Infantry Brigade, 37th Armored Brigade, 46th Infantry Brigade, Division Artillery, 38th Aviation Brigade, and the Division Support Command.
