Gulfport Combat Readiness Training Center (CRTC) provides an integrated, year-round, realistic training environment for units to cost-effectively enhance their combat capability and readiness by enabling users to accomplish training that cannot be effectively accomplished or not available at their home station. Gulfport CRTC provides a training arena that approximates a deployed, combat-oriented operating location, and providing a realistic setting for deployed training, exercises, evaluations, and inspections.
Mississippi National Guardsmen are postured and ready to react to the needs of our state and affected communities in response to natural or manmade disasters. The Mississippi National Guard has unique capabilities that could provide local first responders with additional resources to protect citizens and property, uphold the preservation of peace, order and public safety for the citizens of Mississippi, and fulfill disaster relief and response missions as directed by the Governor. These missions are conducted from many logistical staging areas across the state including Gulfport CRTC.
VISION. To be the preeminent Air National Guard readiness training center.
