The Alabama National Guardsmen Association has announced a new name for the state’s largest guard, who will become the state Guard National Guard.
The new name, the Alabama Guard, is a reference to the state guard uniforms worn by Alabama National guardsmen.
“The Alabaman Guard was born out of necessity.
We have always been a state guard in a time of great need, and we have never lost sight of this mission,” said Lt.
Col. Kevin Tompkins, the group’s executive director.
He added that the name is an extension of the Guard’s long history of service.
According to the association, the name of the guard, which will become Alabama’s 4th guard, was chosen because the Guard has served in more than 50 states and several territories and because “it’s a unique and memorable name for an organization that has been in the Alabama area for decades.”
The name Alabaaman Guard is a play on the Alabamas national guard uniform, which has been worn by all members of the state.
Alabamians have been using the term Guard for decades to refer to the Guard, who have served the state of Alabama since 1917.
The Alabama National guard will begin wearing its uniforms this weekend, as well as the uniforms of the Alabama State Guard, the state police, the Highway Patrol, the sheriff’s office, and the Alabama Army National Guard, according to the organization.
