Happy Birthday Wyoming National Guard! It's been a while since drill weekend meant learning to shoe your horses. Wyo Guard celebrates a couple of milestones this month, with its 148th anniversary and the 120th anniversary of its first federal activation for war. In 1870, Wyoming Territorial Gov. John A. Campbell divided the territory into three military districts and assigned a militia colonel to command each, with orders to enroll a regiment in the respective districts. This was General Order No. 1 and it marks the birth of the Wyoming National Guard by establishing the Wyoming Militia. The militia was authorized to protect and safeguard the people of the Wyoming Territory.
