The SCSG is definitely a commitment. Our soldiers are required to attend monthly drills. Also, in order to keep our professional standards, there are periodic continuing education requirements. These could include on-site SCSG Schools, training seminars and online courses. In the event of a State emergency, you could be called to State Active Duty for days or weeks at a time. You will find that your service hours will add up quickly as you serve side-by -side with your National Guard counterparts in a variety of missions. 

Do we have high demands, standards and expectations? Absolutely, but we offer you the opportunity to use your expertise and acquire new skills - to make a real difference in the lives of your fellow citizens. You will be doing something important. You will be serving with a group of proud professionals as a member of an elite group of highly respected and highly trained Citizen-Soldiers.
