The U.S. Department of Defense Pentagon reports that 15,000 National Guard callers will be sent to secure Democrat Joe Biden’s inauguration.

There are already 6,200 National Guardsmen in Washington.

An additional 10,000 will be sent by the weekend, and the remaining 5,000 can be sent on the day of inauguration, next Wednesday.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser previously called for additional troops to be sent to the city to secure the inauguration.
