HAM Radio Equipment for Catastrophic Events

The Mississippi State Guard (MSSG) (http://www.msstateguard.org  )
is the constitutionally authorized State Defense Force of the State of Mississippi. Operating under the authority of the Mississippi Military Department, it is on an equal constitutional basis with the Mississippi Army National Guard, (MSARNG) and the Mississippi Air National Guard (MSANG).

The Mississippi State Guard is an all-volunteer organization tasked with supplementing the forces of the Mississippi Army National Guard and/or Air National Guard upon the order of the Governor of the State of Mississippi through the Adjutant General of the State of Mississippi. While its primary mission is to assist in coping with any man-made or natural disaster, the MSSG trains to be ready to meet any assignment. As a State Guard Unit, it is not subject to any federal authority, with regard to assignment and/or control.

As a volunteers, we are self-supporting with our primary benefactor being the MS State Guard Association who partners with many organizations to help provide monetary support, supplies, and nonmilitary equipment.  Without their support, most of the membership would be pressed to continue to serve the citizenry of the State of MS.  

Who I am 

My title is the G6 -Chief of Staff for the MS State Guard and I am the chief technology and communications guru for our organization.  One of our mission during catastrophic events is to support and identify opportunities though the use of technology. 

Our Need

 We are looking for donations to help purchase new civilian HAM RADIO equipment that will be portable for rapid field deployment. We are asking you to partner with us, so that the equipment can be used during Annual Training during late May this year 2019.  


To simplify the process, I will withdraw the funds in my name and make the purchases. The final monies (whatever total we have) will purchase the HAM RADIO and associated equipment . There is no personal gain of any kind for myself rather I am just the driver and conduit to get this goal accomplished.

The JAG officer and one other officer keeps me accountable for purchase of the equipment and all of the accounting required. All cost and associated withdraws will be available after the end of the fund raising and posted on our website along with the name of the people who have contributed to this cause.


Partnering with us means you are helping to support:
1. Yourself in case the needs comes for us to listen and respond.
2. Your neighbors as they may be depending on you.
3. The great Citizens of State of Mississippi.

As a Officer and Member of the MS State Guard, I personally thank you for reading about this need and supporting the Troops.
