Tennessee State Guard

Postby ron86654 » Sat Jun 25, 2016 3:37 pm

I heard today that the Tennessee State Guard was being federalized by Presidential Executive Order with Gov Haslam's consent even though it is against the TN Constitution. It is supposedly a done deal to be finalized on 1 Aug, 2016. Truth or Fiction?

As I said, I was a member of the TSG for years & yes, IT is a voluntary org, mostly of vets of the US military service branches. I am not aware that it could be "federalized"..I do know that the TN national Guard can be and often IS federalized for duty outside the state of TN. WE kinda always thought of our TSG units as eserves for use by the governor IF the NGs were called away. Personally I believe every young man or woman could benefit from a couple years military service to their state and country...the TSG is sure better than nothing.
