More than 6,000 National Guard airmen and soldiers from at least 11 states and two territories are expected to provide critical support that will include crowd management, traffic control, communications, emergency services, and ceremonial duties.

In addition to being deputized to helping the D.C. police department in such roles as crowd management and traffic control, the National Guard will also provide mission critical capabilities, that includes medevac support. There will also be fighter jets flying over the D.C. region to keep the skies safe.
