WATCH: DeSantis reestablishes the Florida State Guard, introduces the first director

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis unveiled the Florida State Guard and introduced the  first director.

DeSantis declared “The U.S. military has been kicking out great service members over the Biden administration’s unacceptable COVID vaccine mandate, and they are even targeting members of the National Guard.”
“The bureaucrats in D.C. who control our National Guard have also refused to increase the number of guardsmen despite our increasing population, leaving Florida with the second worst National Guardsman to resident ratio. By reestablishing the Florida State Guard under the leadership of Lieutenant Colonel Graham, we have a great opportunity to expand our capability to help people in times of need or disaster,” he added.
