I'm in "The Lord's Army." Does that count?:laugh:
Only if you sing it.
I voted for two - since I have been in State Guards for about 10 years. I also spent 15 years Regular Army.
The State Guard is the backup to the National Guard
To see if your State has one click on http://SGAUS.ORG, then click on "State organizations and SDF links" near the bottom.
State guards do not have as rigid standards as Federal service. For example many states allow you to join until you are 55 or 60 years old.
There are also many openings for Chaplains. For info click on http://sgaus.org/ChapCorner.HTM
There are actually two kinds of National Guard. There is not only the Army National Guard (which is normally what one is referring to when the term "National Guard" is used), but also there is the Air National Guard.
Both kinds of National Guard are reserve elements of either the Army or the Air Force, but they are usually headed by each state's governor.
I was a member of the Tennessee Air National Guard (118th Airlift Wing) for 16+ years. Prior to that, I was in the regular active duty Air Force for 6 years. I retired from military service in January, 2005.
Army National Guard and Army Reserves (not at the same time, of course)
I was in the army from 1970-1974.
You forgot was your father in the military.
Just wondering why you put the Coast Guard in italics?
Are you trying to give me a complex?
Coast Guard would be in italics because you voted for it
Me? An Army brat...
I served in that position
Life's first fifteen months.
22 years in the U.S. Army, and still serving as a government worker.
Goverment - worker? I didnt know there was such a thing?:laugh:
A blind right eye kept me out of the military. Being right handed with a blind right eye seemed more than they could handle.
So I served my country as a Law Enforcement officer. Qualified "Expert" with revolver and shotgun and retired as a Colonel, Director of Public Safety.
At least I did serve!
Not...but if i had to do it all over again, i think i would go that route before college.
12 years Army...
Does God's Army count?
Air Force from 1988 - 94
