Here is a little background to my question. I was a Chaplain Candidate in the Army National Guard before I resigned my commission/s. As a Chaplain Candidate I was non-deployable but drilled and did annual training just like any other M-Day(Traditional) Guard soldier and received retirement points credit. I was honorably discharged and received my NGB 22. On the top as it always does it stated “Record of Service in the Army National Guard of my state and AS a Reserve of the Army. Now I understand that all National Guard officers have a state commission and a federal commission, as well as being a member of the Army National Guard of my state AND the Army National Guard of the US. Recently however I ran into someone who told me that because I never deployed I was never in the US Army reserve component, and that I had only been a state militia soldier. I have researched and researched both Title 32 and Title 10 as well as relevant court cases, and have only ended up confused some sources say I was doing Reserve service(Ready Reserve/Selected Reserve), other say I wasn’t unless I was mobilized under Title 10. My question is was I doing US Army reserve service or was I “solely” state militia ? Hoping someone can answer this for me.
