Welcome to the premiere issue of the Guard Times news magazine. The Joint Force Headquarters Public Affairs staff has redesigned our command information publication to better feature our New York State Military Forces. Our goal is to better tell the stories of all our Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and New York Guard volunteers.
The Guard Times will be published quarterly, providing you with a highlight of operations, training and missions across the State of New York and around the world. Your four issues each year will make a yearbook of events from the entire New York National Guard.
After announcing our transition last fall and the retirement of the Guard Times military forces newspaper, we asked for submissions to rename our new publication. Your input was both fun and creative, with many names keeping to our National Guard theme or the nicknames so common to our Empire State. In the end, we chose to keep the Guard Times name because it is so well known throughout our force and maintains our ties to the past. Besides, we all really like the whole gt logo for brand identity!
