Ready if the call comes

        Around the nation and Tristate, members of state National Guard units and Army Reserves waited to see whether their units would be among those called to active duty.

        None of Ohio's units had been called up Saturday afternoon. The state has 15,000 members in the National Guard and Army Reserves.

        “We stand ready. That's what the reserve forces are for,” said Maj. Ted Theopolos, of the Army Reserve's 445th Airlift Wing, based in Dayton.

        Ohio's Air Guard is the fourth-largest in the nation and the Army Guard is in the top 10.

        Reservists in Kentucky and Indiana also were awaiting word on whether they would be called.

        The Kentucky National Guard had not received notice to activate any Army or Air National Guard units or individuals. About 7,500 men and women with Army and Air Guard units report to 47 armories across the state.

        The Indiana Guard has 13,000 soldiers and air personnel, 68 armories and two air bases.
