We Answered the Call

— 1861 - Today —

The United States Congress officially ended the draft in September 28, 1971. Since then, volunteer armed forces have been called to protect freedom throughout the world.

In 2001, the Beatrice National Guard was deployed to Kuwait with the 1-167 Cavalry, the first deployment of Company C since the end of World War II. Our Guard Unit continues to "Answer the Call": in Bosnia in 2003 and in Iraq in 2006 and 2007.

For the last 60 years, because of our success as a super power, American fighting men and women have fought to better the state of humanity throughout the world. Democracy spreads wherever our veterans serve.
