Where is the Army National Guard?

Where is a Thread for those who have served in the Army National Guard? I did for 9 almost 10 years.

The National Guard of the US is too specific and would exclude reservists from every other nation that has representatives on our boards. ACG is not just an American board, as such the guard (air, army, marine, whatever) is best kept under the category of the permanent forces. Otherwise it would require a reservist thread for every branch and every nationality.

Cheers.

I was a lowly MP who made it to sergeant. Although I don't understand why. It was an honor to serve my country. You're quite welcome.

You are in the right sub-forum, Reb.

The general idear is to post a thread about whatever UNIT (yes, we know that would be potentially several) you belonged to & others that may have served will be naturally attracted to it thus creating somewhat of a more personal unit history from a Soldier/Sailor/Marines/Airmans perspective. It would always be good to check & see if one for a particular unit already exists, but they can be merged if it is conducive to do so.

IOW, the name of the thread should be the name of the unit, itself, or other more personal description...

However, some folks have taken to starting a thread about all units they served in in one thread, which is sufficient as well. The only down side to that is that it becomes less about the actual Unit & more a collage of service in a branch entirely, however it also gives others a chance to get to know a bit more about their comrades in arms, as well.

It is fine either way, or even both.

1980, US Congress, decides that the Guard & Reserves should be trained in the same fasion as the regular branches. Depending on how serious the units took this concept meant going to some shithole Army base for training or shippong right out. ALL units, active, guard or reserve are interchangable. You will find that a number have their units 'redesignated" Previous to the Middle East in 190, the US Guard & Reserves had 'bad' showings, couldn't find their ass with two hands. Thank god for 'clearer' minds.

Served two and a half years with the Puerto Rico National Guard's 1st Battalion, 296th Infantry in Mayaguez. Once in Law School, I transferred to a Special Forces Individual Mobilization Augmentee position in the USSOUTHCOM J-3 Special Ops Division in Panama, pulling nearly a year and a half active duty before returning to active service in 1980.

The New York National Guard once had more than seven full Infantry Regiments. They were often referred to by the old Militia Titles and numbers. The Regular Army activated the Guard units for World War I and found they had to combine some and convert others to a different branch.

Sample state: North Dakota had two Guard Infantry Regiments, the 1st and 2nd. The 1st became the 164th Infantry Regiment and the 2nd had its men split up into the 81st Infantry Brigade HQ, 148th MG Bn, 147th MG Bn, 164th Inf Reg, 116th Trench Mortar Co, 116th Engineers, 116th Sanitation Troop, 109th Sanitation troop.

Many states also had a shortage of horses for their Cavalry and Horse drawn units. Then the Army rejected most of them as inadequate.
