Join the men and women of the Arizona National Guard Sunday, Dec. 2, 2018, at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tucson, AZ as they rally to honor the service and sacrifice of all Arizona veterans and pay tribute to the 100-year anniversary of the end of WWI. All community members, veterans, families and civic groups are invited to attend free of charge.
The “Muster” is a time-honored National Guard tradition dating back to 1636 when America’s first colonial militia assembled in Salem, Massachusetts. To culminate their dedicated service after 17 years of fighting overseas, today’s Arizona National Guard Citizen-Soldiers and Airmen will muster in military formation on the stadium field for review by their Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. Michael T. McGuire.
For everyone's safety, all guests entering the stadium are subject to bag checks and metal detection conducted by event staff.

About the Arizona National Guard
Nearly 8,000 Arizonans serve in the state’s Army and Air National Guard. Since the terrorist attacks on America Sept. 11, 2001, they have supported over 11,500 individual deployments to overseas contingencies.
They are the best-trained and equipped reserve for America’s armed forces, and they stand ready to protect their communities in the event of a state emergency or disaster. They proudly serve our Nation and State full or part time, training to the highest standards of the United States Army and Air Force.
Most spend their entire military careers in Arizona. They are our co-workers, neighbors, teachers, coaches, first responders, and volunteers. They are Arizona’s Citizen-Soldiers and Airmen.
