Government Accountability Office reports that the National Guard is facing difficulties in keeping people with the know-how for dealing with emergencies.
The Senate approved an amendment to the sweeping defense bill by voice vote Monday night despite opposition of the current chairman and service chiefs.
The cascading effects of the Obama administration's decision to pull thousands of soldiers out of Iraq and Afghanistan are rippling through the National Guard.
After a decade in which it has been built up to parity with the active Army and Air Force components, the National Guard should not be allowed to backslide to a point where it is no longer usable, the National Guard chief said Friday.
Retired Maj. Gen. Gus Hargett, the former adjutant general for the Tennessee National Guard, who now serves as the president of the National Guard Association of the United States joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris to discuss why the National Guard should be included in the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Senate is set to take up the issue this week.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Martin Dempsey said he will recommend to Congress that the chief of the National Guard bureau not become a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He announced the decision ahead of expected Congressional testimony later this week so service members would hear it from him first, before hearing it on the news.
It took some time for him to finally be confirmed by the Senate, but John McHugh is now the 21st secretary of the U.S. Army. For the last 16 years he's been a member of Congress representing New York. Most recently, he's been ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, and co-chair of the bi-partisan House Army Caucus. He'll lead a workforce of more than a million active duty, National Guard, and reservists, and a civilian workforce of 221 thousand.
When federal and postal workers are called to active duty with the National Guard many of them take a pay cut, but Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says that is about to change.
