National Guard Interests in the Arctic: Arctic and Extreme Cold Weather Capability

Senior leaders representing the National Guard Arctic Interest Council will discuss how the National Guard is contributing to the advancement of Arctic and cold weather capabilities within U.S. defense institutions. The National Guard Arctic Interest Council is a forum of subject matter experts from eighteen States with interests in cold weather and Arctic operations. The forum seeks to identify areas where the National Guard can lead DOD efforts in respect to cold weather warfare, provide assessments of requirements for cold weather and Arctic operations, and leverage National Guard expertise to assess existing cold weather capabilities, evaluate equipment, and develop and refine non-material solutions.
