Abstract This thesis proposes that the National Guard is a service-equivalent force that requires expanded authorities to develop capabilities for its dual- role mission. The paper provides an in-depth analysis of the historical role of the colonial militia and its subsequent evolution into the modern-day National Guard. It examines the debates and issues that underpin the current defense force structure and makes specific recommendations for the future development and role of the National Guard.
