HOME OF GAIN BOOSTER FEEPS SAM DAVIS SOUTH PHUUPS ST. ALGONA, IOWA have devoted themselves to the Ideal of "B" is for ready. Washington was a member of the militia in Virginia. Like today's Guardsmen who carry on in the footsteps and traditions of the old rriilitia, he was a civilian- soldier who took time to be concerned about security of his country and community at the same time that he held down fulltime civil employment. George Washington did not think this so unique. He believed in it. He put this belief into words and these are words which hold a special meaning for .our neighbors who belong to the National Guard: j "Every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government owes not only a pbrtion of his property but even of his personal services' to the defense of it." Let this Muster Day and George Washington's birthday serve to remind you to see how the Guard helps our country keep its guard up! MUSTER DAY The idea for "National Guard Muster Day" has its origins in colonial America when the able-bodied men of the community were "mustered" on the village green once a year for a roll-call and inspection of arms. As the country grew in size, population, and stature the loosely-formed Militia gave way to more formal military organizations. The Organized Militia became a •uniformed and equipped force with scheduled tr«ining,iperiods_ in .place of an "annual muster tdjcount noses. The National Guard, successor to the Organized Militia, celebrates Muster Day each year on February 22, birthday of George Washington, colonel in the Virginia Militia, Father of his country, and first president of the United States. .
