ARTICLE 3. National Guard.
Editor's Note. - Session Laws 1975, c. 604, repealed Chapter 127 and Article 23 of Chapter 143 and enacted this Chapter in lieu thereof. Where appropriate, the historical citations to the sections of the repealed Chapter and Article have been added to the corresponding sections of the new Chapter.
Session Laws 1977, c. 70, s. 2, provided that whenever the words "Department of Military and Veterans Affairs" were used in G.S. § 127A-1 through G.S. § 127A-195, the same would be deleted and the words "Department of Crime Control and Public Safety" would be inserted in lieu thereof. The act made no mention of the Secretary of Military and Veterans Affairs; however, in order to give effect to its obvious intent, the editors have substituted "Secretary of Crime Control and Public Safety" for "Secretary of Military and Veterans Affairs" throughout this Chapter. Session Laws § 2011-145, s. 19.1(g) further updated the chapter by substituting "Secretary of Public Safety" for "Secretary of Crime Control and Public Safety."
