    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.

    Coast Guard would be in italics because you voted for it

    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!
