Question about The National Guard

If you join The National Guard, are you GUARANTEED to only ship out one weekend a month for as long as you are enlisted? Or can they keep you overseas for much longer?

its not a promise but most often you only ship overseas for one weekend a month. Like you will fly out prolly to Afghanistan on friday afternoon and then fly back that sunday to home for the weekend to be over

Is there a legal limit on how long they can keep you overseas at one time?

Are you sure about that? I heard the guard can call you whenever they want and keep you overseas for a lot longer than one weekend.

I just went to their website and it said you can be deployed for up to a year. They lie, I doubt anyone is lucky enough to consistently go one weekend a month.

Jesus Christ, OP, this is what you get for coming to the ST Military forum.

I'm part of the National guard and I can verify that we go on weekend long overseas trips. Nothing more. I believe you're thinking about officers for that year long tour of duty. If you go enlisted, they ship you off on friday night to Afghanistan, make a transistion in some military base in Kaiserslautern (you don't need to know it, not important) and then you will be in Afghanistan by 7PM on Saturday, then you do drills, shoot some towlheads then go home on Sunday morning. It's relatively process, and a lot of fun. One time the good ol' guard let me bring my .22. It's great goin' for some 'coon huntin'! Join the National Guard!

Op...this is possibly the most retarded question I have ever heard.

If you get deployed..ie goin over seas...you will be there anywhere from 1 month to 13 months.

The one weekend a month thign is called drill.. You just go train with your unit for 1 weekend every month.

If you get sen over seas it WILL NOT be only for a weekend.

finally an NG expert to clarify and rectify this situation. As yoiu can see weekend trips to the middle east are SOP in the NG. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a liar, and doesnt want to spoil the countrys best kept secret.

I could not stop laughing at this thread. I mean how stupid can you be to believe that you'll go overseas for 1 weekend a month 2 weeks a year. Wow Just WOW!!!!!! This is known as an epic thread. They send in the NG to just stand post after someone else clears a section of the country. Or you stand post aboard a huge fobbit base. God these are the posts that make your day in Afghanistan. trillion411 just keep doing what this face is doing:

Ok let me say this your young and your in High School I bet so not your fault. Before posting on a huge website like this make sure you do your homework then ask questions. Meaning talk to a recruiter who by the way will say anything to get your name on that solid black line.

Don't listen to these idiots. They think they know what it's like protecting America, but they don't, because they aren't National Guard. Go GUARD!
