MADISON, Wis. – In the course of two weeks, approximately 350 Wisconsin National Guard Soldiers and Airmen have been activated to be prepared for missions in support of the state's response to COVID-19. As fear of the unprecedented state of the country has grown, rumors and speculation on the Guard’s role caused waves of uncertainty to ripple across Wisconsin in reflection of this new mobilization. However, the dual mission of the Wisconsin National Guard includes focusing on the safety of the nation as well as the safety of individuals who Soldiers and Airmen call colleagues, neighbors, and friends.
