The US National Guard will keep 7,000 of its members in Washington until mid-March

The United States National Guard announced this Saturday that, at the request of the Government, it will keep approximately 7,000 of its members in Washington DC until mid-March.

By this time in the third month of the year, the contingent would drop to 5,000 if everything went without incident, according to CBS.

Members of the National Guard will be in charge of communications, security, logistics and medical evacuations.

Since the criticized security management in the assault on the Capitol on January 6 in which five people died, fears of further violent incidents have led to the deployment of a large police device at the headquarters of the US legislature.

For the inauguration of the American president, Joe Biden, 25,000 members of the National Guard were part of the security operation that built fences and armored Washington.

Both the president in a call this Saturday and the first lady, Jill Biden, who distributed cookies among them, have thanked the body for its work.
