Volunteer army and air militia units comprise the U.S. National Guard. The units are subject to mobilization by the governors of the states or by the president of the United States. The Dick Act of 1903 established the National Guard in its modern form, although the act provided for call up by state governors only. In 1916 the guard was made subject to federal mobilization. Under the National Defense Act of 1916, the U.S. Army was organized into three components: regular army, reserves, and the National Guard. In 1947 the Air National Guard was created.
