The state’s Emergency Commission approved a temporary funding plan – and the 2019 Legislature increased the amount for the current two year period.
"Recruiting is up in both the Air and the Army Guard," said North Dakota National Guard Adjutant General Alan Dohrmann.
Dohrmann said the retention of Guard personnel has always been great.
"We have great citizen soldiers and airmen," Dohrmann said. " We make a huge investment in these folks' training."
