National Guard Technicians are employees of The Adjutant General for Ohio as authorized by the National Guard Technician Act of 1968 (32 USC 709, Public Law 90-486). The primary mission of a National Guard technician is to provide day-to-day continuity in the operation and training of Army and Air National Guard units before, during and after mobilization.
Military technicians are employees of the Department of Army or Department of the Air Force. Military Technicians are required to maintain military membership in the National Guard, observe customs and courtesies, and maintain a military grade and unit of assignment compatible with their technician position.
The National Guard also employs Non Dual Status (NDS) technicians. NDS technicians are a small but important segment of the workforce that is not required to maintain a military affiliation as a condition of employment.
