About the National Guard Bureau Publications and Forms Center

The National Guard Bureau Publications and Forms Center, or ‘print plant’ as it is more widely known, was established at Camp Keyes in June 1953, as a printing plant for checklists and other component forms exclusively. Over the years the plant has grown and shifted responsibilities. It now prints all of the forms and duplication requests for the entire National Guard, consisting of all 54 states and territories.
