What bugs me about some people is that when they find out that I’m in the National Guard their respect decreases some then they proceed to say, “oh. You’re a weekend warrior? So like… You don’t do much.”

Ahem. Excuse me. Soldiers in the national guard go through the same bct and ait as the “regular” army soldiers. My sgt. has been deployed 6 times overseas and he’s told me some crazy stories. Just because someone is in the national guard doesn’t mean they “don’t do much.” So please… Show respect to all the military branches.
