The Guam Air National Guard (GU ANG) is the air force militia of Guam, an Unincorporated Territory of the United States of America. It is, along with the Guam Army National Guard, an element of the Guam National Guard.

As territorial militia units, the units in the Guam Air National Guard are not in the normal United States Air Force chain of command. They are under the jurisdiction of the Governor of Guam though the office of the Guam Adjutant General unless they are federalized by order of the President of the United States. The Guam Air National Guard is headquartered at Andersen Air Force Base, and its commander is Colonel Botha.

Overview

Under the "Total Force" concept, Guam Air National Guard units are considered to be Air Reserve Components (ARC) of the United States Air Force (USAF). Guam ANG units are trained and equipped by the Air Force and are operationally gained by a Major Command of the USAF if federalized. In addition, the Guams Air National Guard forces are assigned to Air Expeditionary Forces and are subject to deployment tasking orders along with their active duty and Air Force Reserve counterparts in their assigned cycle deployment window.

Along with their federal reserve obligations, as territorial militia units the elements of the Guam ANG are subject to being activated by order of the Governor to provide protection of life and property, and preserve peace, order and public safety. Territorial missions include disaster relief in times of earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and forest fires, search and rescue, protection of vital public services, and support to civil defense.
