The Mississippi National Guard Counterdrug Program (MS CDTF) is a vital member of a coalition of National Guard members, law enforcement agencies (LEAs), and local communities, which are involved in a multi-front battle against drugs and drug-related violence. The mission of the program is to provide high-quality military personnel and equipment to support federal, state, and local drug LEAs as well as community-based organizations that work to reduce the demand for drugs. The MS CDTF currently consists of Army National Guard soldiers and Air National Guard airmen on full time active-duty status in accordance with Title 32, Section 112, United States Code. These soldiers and airmen are from National Guard units throughout the state and perform Counterdrug (CD) duties in a support role. Personnel strength is increased during marijuana eradication season or for special mission support.
