The California Military Department is an office characterized under the California Military and Veterans code 50. It incorporates the Office of the Adjutant General, the California National Guard, the California State Guard, the California Cadet Corps, and the California Naval Militia.
The California Military Department and the California National Guard are some of the time alluded to reciprocally. This is off base, as the National Guard is, by law, a segment of the Military Department. In contrast to numerous states (for instance, Nevada and Arizona) whose National Guards contain their military powers, California additionally has a state protection power that works under the state's sole position.
