James, List, All - I will not allow this to pass unchallenged. During the War, virtually every National Guard unit was called to active duty. One unit from Oklahoma was called up in 1940 and was finally released from active duty five years later. The National Guard units were fighting alongside the active forces. The situation in the 1960s, that the National Guard was the hiding place to stay out of Vietnam and manned by incompetents, is somewhat true, but it was not true in the 1940s and certainly isn't true today. The National Guard is part of a composite US Military with tough training and standards and is often more competent in the technical aspects of specific assignments that the active forces. So, this somewhat limited insult to the New Mexico National Guard in 1947 is undeserved. While they might not have been hand picked, they were every bit as competent and capable as their active duty counterparts... I now retreat from this debate. Kevin D.
