Cherry pick, Cherry pick, there were more Guard used in WW2, than WW1, or Vietnam, or Desert Sotrm, most of the soldiers in WW2 were Guard. 80% of the first Ranger units in WW32 were Guard.<quoted text>
"More" is a relative number, Numbnuts.
"most" is not, "most" means 50 percent plus one.
E.G.: Forty percent of the intial deployment of US military in WWI were reserve units.
40 percent is not most. 50.1 percent would be most.
It's up to you to back your assertions, spoogebreath.
I asked you start at Vietnam and work backwards.
Vietnam not so much. I think you are obsessed with my saying that every major conflict had more Guard than regular Army, you are right Vietnam and Desert Storm had less. Every other conflict had more Guard, because that is what there was, a small standing Army and the Guard, Revolutionary War, militia, the forerrunner to the Guard, War of 1812, militia; Civil War, milita, War of 1812, militia; WW1 National Guard, I know Wikipedia says that only 40% of the soldiers in WW1 were Guard but that doesn't coinside with the National guard history. The regular army only had eight divisions deployed, the National Guard had 35 divisions deployed to Europe, most of them in France, WW2 National Guard; Korea, National Guard; Vietnam, Regular Army and Reserves, Desert Storm, Regular Army and Reserves, Iraq and Afghanistan, Again I know that as of the writing of the Wikipedia page only around 300,000 Guardsmen had deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, to date the National Guard has provided a minimum of 55,000-100,000 soldiers and airmen a year to deployments overseas since 9/11 over 600,000- 1.3 million troops in 13 years,(active force is only held at 550,000)the difference between National guard and active being that Active duty has way more attrition than the Guard, as Guardsmen tend to go back to work,(if they can find it) between deployments, while Active Duty soldiers end to do four years and out.
Seems to me that the Guard has been an integral part and provided most of the troops in ALMOST every major engagement the United States has been in. Just because you refuse to be part of the less than 1% to ever serve your country doesn't mean you have to get mad. You ought to be happy that others are doing the job you don't or wouldn't want. Look at how much of a better life you have had for your non service!
