  • Is the Indiana National Guard the same as the Army National Guard?

    I'm embarrassed to even ask, but I've had a bit of trouble finding a straight answer online. My son is heading to FLW on the 2nd for basic and AIT (88M).

    Each states "National Guard" is comprised of both Army Guard and Air Guard. So, assuming your son joined the Indiana ARMY National Guard, than yes...it is the same.

      Yes, he joined the Indiana Army National Guard. We are all still learning the ins and outs of everything (including him).

      Thank you for the help.

        If his uniform has US Army on it; then he could be a part of the Army National Guard (which you stated he is). There are some State Guard (militia) that wear the same uniform as the US Army but it would not say US Army on it. Like Clark Howard did on his show.

          Uniform says US Army, so I guess it's settled.

            Have you seen the Parents FAQ section on the National Guard website? I would highly recommend it for learning the basics: Parents

            Good luck to your son in his training!

              Ahh they closed that SMR thread and it was very interesting and informing. BTW, I was not arguing. lol

              The last thing I wanted to add is if you go to page 8 of the link that Jarhead provide.

              http://www.calguard.ca.gov/PA/Docume...yMarch2013.pdf <--The caption that shows SSG Carter. You can see on his ACUs, his tag shows California; not US Army and that is how you can distinguish a difference between the uniforms.

              http://www.militarymuseum.org/CMH.html <--same here
