    All Army National Guard units are deployable. Deployments are random, and based off the needs of the country. Typically, Army National Guard soldiers are provided a 6-12 month alert prior to an upcoming deployment. Deployments are typically 12 months in length, but may be shorter based on the mission assigned to your unit.

    For further assistance, you may chat with a representative by selecting the link below:

      My unit is deploying this fall. It happens, and it depends on the needs of the army

        I went into my first unit 6 years ago thinking that I would deploy soon after, and that unit still hasn't deployed. There are a lot of variables, like MOS, the type of unit it is, what's going on in the world. There's no way to tell you for sure if your daughter will deploy or not.

          This. I was told there was a good chance we'd deploy 2-3 times in the 6 years. Not so lucky!

            Keep in mind, while the National Guard does deploy, your daughter cannot be deployed until after she has completed Basic Training and her AIT (job training). Both you and your daughter should realize that if she enlists for six years there's a high probability that she will deploy somewhere during those six years.
