The Guam National Guard received a Department of the Army Activation Order to provide Security Forces (SECFOR) to Task Force Talon on Anderson Air Force Base, Yigo, Guam. Task Force Talon is responsible for operating the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) on Guam. The THAAD is an anti-ballistic missile defense system designed to shoot down short-, medium-, and intermediate-range ballistic missiles in their terminal phase (descent or reentry) by intercepting with a hit-to-kill approach.
