One of my colleagues has pointed out that National Guardsmen may not have the unit support that active duty military personnel have to help them readjust to life outside of wartime service. They may also experience some level of discrimination-- when compared to active duty or reservist military. Are they disenfranchised by their military service? Or, is it just a coincidence?
Have you had any experience with National Guardsmen that could shed some light on this area? Do we have any police officers reading who are also Guardsmen and can discuss what the difference is from the inside? I would be interested in learning more.
