Always ready, Always there! The Ohio Air National Guard has seven main bases across the state located in Cincinnati, Columbus, Mansfield, Port Clinton, Springfield, Swanton and Zanesville, performing thirteen unique missions. They continually train and prepare the citizen-airman to respond to the Governor of Ohio for state emergencies or the call of the President in times of crisis.
