18 Diversity and inclusion is about creating National Guard teams where everyone is included, engaged, and passionate about accomplishing the mission. It is a force multiplier in achieving combat and mission readiness. Our diversity defines who we are as an organization and makes public our valued skills and talents that further strengthen the espirit de corps of our force. We should always be grounded in the concept, that diversity and inclusion in the National Guard is not a policy or a program, but is a fact of America, and we are America. -General Craig R.
