  • Do units ever get loaned?

    For instance, could my Governor in Alabama loan my Engineering unit to Oklahoma for disaster recovery. And before you say it, I know OK has their own NG. Thanks.

    Not sure if this is what you mean, but I know during the DNC held here in NC, NG units from FL doing their AT did security work.

      The answer is yes - a state can request assistance from other states. South Carolina sent Engineers to New England (Rhode Island?) to help out after a flood (I think) in response to a request from that state for additional assets.

        Use the terms - attached/detached. Or better yet - OPCON

            Katrina, Presidential inaugurations, etc.

            It happens a lot during times when the affected state is short on troops, vehicles etc because they're deployed. Sometimes the need is larger and everyone goes and sometimes it can even be a small group, where they will (no joke) ask for volunteers.

              No, it is not. Learning about doctrine and how the Army functions overall is knowledge that is open to everyone who serves.

                      SSG, I never said different. I just was providing a link to the OP so he can get an understanding of what he was trying to explain. Guard units have been OPCON to missions to Kosovo and overall, I was refering to tactical missions.

                      Guard members have served in other states in regards to emergency and missions.

                          You posted a link for him to use terminology that isn't applicable to being deployed out of state. It is no different than me telling him to call it supercalifragilisticexpialidocious; it makes as much sense as calling it opcon.

                            You are being too anal. The OP is an adult and has basic reading comprehensive to deduce and understand the differences to attach/detach/opcon. Like you wrote to the Captain, some posts/responses are not necessary and yours was clearly it.

                              Sorry on iPhone and posts not going through. I said CTARNG had missions to southern border and Utah Winter Olympics. Incognito gets on my nerves at times but I still love him lol
