The Oldest Active National Guard Unit In The U.S., The West Virginia Army National Guard Is Over 285 Years Old

West Virginia boasts the oldest river in the nation. Part of the nation’s oldest highway runs through West Virginia. And if that’s not impressive enough, here’s something else: the West Virginia Army National Guard is the oldest active National Guard unit in the whole United States!

Where would we be without the West Virginia National Guard? The fun fact that this unit is the oldest active National Guard unit in the whole United States is just one of the distinctions that make it, in our opinion at least, the best in the nation. Thanks, WVANG!
