There are a lot of good men and women that work hard to join the guard and now they are being cut for minor issues. Once again our government is working against Americans willing to sacrifice for our Country. Someone needs to stand up for those that have gone through the training. Which by the way cost a lot of money and then are being released for acne or some minor issue. Are you really saving anything?? Keep the trained folks and lower your recruiting goals. Dont waste the money spent on uniforms, training, education and then discharge. Are you saving money? Are you doing what is best for the budget? Just stop recruiting!!! Use the people that have committed to you and that you have trained. It really is not that hard folks. Does Acne or two pounds really make a bad soldier?

First the National Guard should be just that, A HOME GUARD NOT USED TO FILL THE ARMY VACANCIES! They should take care of our Country, no fight the useless Wars (not our business) overseas. Second after we weaken our "Home Guard" by supplying these extra "overseas" Troops, who will be here to protect our own soil? The Citizens left at home after our Government removes our Guns? WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

"But there are suspicions inside the Guard and out that the reductions are part of an effort to shift the burden of fighting overseas onto the active-duty Army."

So? The ARE called the "National Guard" not the INTER-National Guard. They should have never been misused in an overseas war to begin with. We needed them during Katrina, during the Sept 08 power outage in Cols, CA wildfires and for any other man made or natural disaster that happens in THIS country.

Hey, there is nothing comfortable about being face to face with a soldier, and have to stare at their acne. EWW! Soldiers are embassadors of this great nation. The last thing we need is foreigners thinking that all American's are pimple faced dummies.

HOW STUPID! ACNE? Really? Thank God there are creams for that. Darwin-Marshall-Law is in effect. Let all of the healthy people die so that the mutants may live!
