I think this is a very sweet picture. It's very hard on a family when a member is deployed. The kind act depicted in this picture of this guardsman showing his little boy that he is a an important part of his fathers life and will probably be thought of fondly by the boy and father during the long deployment and help them both get through the long months ahead. We need more sweetness in this world.

The artillery battalion from Southern Utah, the 213th Field Artillery Battalion, served with great distinction in the Korean War. I also served there at the same time, but in a different Utah National Guard Unit. We we were all very honored for the notable service provided by the 213 FA Bn. I'm sure these men will also serve in the same manner.

Is this even legal? I thought the national guard wasn't supposed to be used for things like this.


For : "Is this even legal? I thought the national guard wasn't supposed to be used for things like this."

Of course it's legal...they are part to the U.S. Military, the joined out of their own free will. We are meant to complete the mission at all costs, which includes deploying. Every one of us signed a contract, Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, and National Guard. All we can do is be greatful for the services provided from these great people.
