The Virginia National Guard has speakers from the Army and Air National Guard with diverse backgrounds and expertise serving and living in nearly every corner of Virginia. The goal of the Speakers Bureau is to inform our Citizens about the state, federal and global missions of the Virginia National Guard as a whole and the specific capabilities the Virginia National Guard as the first military responder during emergencies uses to assist civil authorities to protect life and property in the homeland.
