I don't know very much about how the military works but why would the national guard ever be sent over seas?
Shouldn't they be here...guarding the nation?

First, The National Guard of the United States is a joint reserve force of the US Military....
There are a series of national Defense Acts that allow the Federal Government to engage in a quick responce deployment of National Guard.... IE~Most recently there is the National Defense Act of 2008.... "enables the President to call up the National Guard of the United States for active federal military service during Congressionally sanctioned national emergency or war. Places the National Guard Bureau directly under the Department of Defense as a joint activity. Promoted the Chief of the National Guard Bureau from a three-star to a four-star general."
