What the news media is missing in reporting on the deployment
of the NG to the border is the personal impact on families of
those uprooted from daily life. Also, very skimpy word on
whether this also includes RA regular army reserve units?
We’re talking of really civilian people having to leave
permanent employment and a family for an unspecified length
of time. Being familiar with the problems of mandatory
reserve summer camp where some employers required vacation
time be taken to fulfill the obligation and losing pay
in many cases, there’s a lot not being told here.
Why not use the RA troops instead!?
There’s plenty of wasted deployment in other countries that
could be re-assigned to the border to alleve the situation!
