The Texas Maritime Regiment (TMAR) is one of four major components
of the Texas State Guard (TXSG) which include the Army Component, the Air
Division, and the Texas Medical Brigade.
The newest of the TXSG regiments, TMAR, was formed in 2006. With more
than 200 members, TMAR provides mission-ready volunteer military
forces – with a unique maritime focus – for operations in support of
homeland security, natural disasters and state agencies.
The Maritime Regiment specifically embraces the unique structure and
traditions of America’s Naval and Marine forces in preparing troops
to carry out duties related to Texas’ land, marine, littoral and
riverine environments. In the interest of creating the most
effective response team, TMAR has forged working relationships with
various groups such as the U.S. Coast Guard, Texas Parks and
Wildlife, Texas Forest Service, and the Lower Colorado River
The regiment‘s members are true volunteers who willingly accept
military discipline, orders and training to answer the call to meet
urgent human needs in times of peril or crisis. TMAR’s unique scope
of missions include operations along the State’s hundreds of miles
of coastline, its lakes and shorelines, and the rivers which define
Texas’s borders – from the northernmost canyons of Texas’s Panhandle
to the Gulf of Mexico.
