The United States National Guard is a component of the United States Army (the Army National Guard) and the United States Air Force (the Air National Guard). The Militia Act of 1903 organized the various state militias into the present National Guard system. The Army National Guard is part of the United States Army , comprising approximately one half of its available combat forces and approximately one third of its support organization. The Air National Guard is part of the United States Air Force . Both are maintained through the National Guard Bureau , whose Chief is a Lieutenant General .
Various State Militias also exist which are reserves to the National Guard and are collectively known as State Defense Forces . The State Militias, in some cases, pre-date the existence of the National Guard and are maintained on both an organized and unorganized level. The organized militia exists to supplement the National Guard in the event of manpower shortages while the unorganized militia comprises every able bodied male in a state which may be called up for extreme emergencies such as an invasion of the United States or a major catastrophe inside her shores. The last time that the unorganized state militias were activated was during the Civil War.
