  • Expecting trouble DC locks down a week before inauguration

National Guard members will be postured to meet the requirements of the supported civil authorities up to and including the wear of protective equipment and being armed, if necessary.

However, Vice President Mike Pence assured the nation that his administration will ensure a "safe inauguration".

"We're going to ensure that we have a safe inauguration and that president-elect Joe Biden, vice president-elect Kamala Harris are sworn in as the new president and vice president", Pence said in his first public appearance since the January 6 violence at the Capitol.

The emergency deployment has resulted in large numbers of Guard troops occupying spaces in the Capitol and other buildings.

They will join more than 20,000 other troops and police from across the country on January 20 and in the days leading up to the inauguration in protecting the U.S. Capitol and supporting federal partners in "a number of different roles as determined by the lead agency", according to a tweet.

Approximately 20,000 National Guardsmen are expected in D.C. from across the country as Joe Biden is sworn in January 20 as the 46th President of the United States, according to Kelly's office. A $12 donation feeds four troops, and up to $300 will feed 100 troops.

Currently, all 7,000 Guard members in D.C. are staying at local hotels contracted by the city, a National Guard official told Military.com.

The Guard is also working with appropriate staff at the Capitol to give soldiers designated rooms for break areas, the defense official said.

The decision marks a change from Wednesday when the Kansas National Guard said it wasn't sending any soldiers or airmen for the inauguration. "At the same time, we have thousands around the country, supporting COVID operations, Operation Warp Speed, and a multitude of soldiers and airmen are deployed overseas supporting combat operations".
