    Exactly my point that you work less. And I know that your job as a NG Commander was time consuming because AD Commanders work around the clock. Again, the focus of discussion is that some believe that NG life is harder than AD based on certain notions (and yes, there are challenges) but due to the macro picture and serving in eaach Reserve/AD components for a decade, I simply beg to differ. BTW, I did not type 'blah" in my post lol.

      By now you know well that every Soldier in the Army has a harder life than every other Soldier in the Army. While this statement may seem paradoxical on its face, I assure you that it is true.
