"Always ready, always there" is the official motto of the United States National Guard. This military branch is presented through the eyes of a child whose cousin upholds that motto every day as a member of this reserve military force. Readers get an in-depth look at what it's like to have a family member in the military. The text also explores the history of this branch, its modern-day operations, and its members' unique lifestyle. Fact boxes and photographs present other topics, such as the National Guard's tools and technology and career opportunities. By the end of the text, readers gain a full understanding of the sacrifices made by the brave men and women-and their families-of the U.S. National Guard.
