Throughout most of its history, America has relied upon the militia (later, the National Guard (NG)) and wartime volunteers as the mainstays of its defense.

This study traces the transformation of NG aviation from a grass roots experiment that first emerged prior to World War I to a true force in reserve of the Air Force after the Vietnam conflict.
