OK...I'm wrong...I don't know the difference..but they are NOT...


part of the 5,000 troops trump ordered down there, are they?

And since you are a vet and (I think) part of the military presence down there out of Tucson, can you tell me why they are there and what they are doing?

Back in the "old days" during the Vietnam War, the NG was a way to serve on our U.S. soil. They were not sent to VN. I lived through that, knew many guys in the Guard and after training, basically went once a month to report and "train" or whatever they did. But they were never sent over seas. Their assignment was to stay here and keep order if needed.

You are very spiteful and love to point these things out to us which is not the same as being proud of serving.
