  • A lot of those who were sent to the mideast are National Guard. There are two sides to this.
    This is considered a job with benefits by many who "in-between jobs". However, for many others, this is an expression of patriotism because many reservists and national guards still have to pay civilian taxes and must leave their civilian jobs, which would mean loss of income. For the second reason, I consider reservists and national guardsmen as the value of two people in one.
