I travel over 200 miles to drill. Are they suposed to get me a hotel or do I have to get one on my own? Also Should I get travel pay. I havnt gone to drill to ask yet but I just joined. Any help would be great.
The Guard Warriors were second class citizens. I hope that has changed since 2008 - when homeless Guard veterans were living in the Armories, sleeping on cots, flying under the radar. They took care of each other when no one else would. I hope your Guard experience lives up to your expectations. Best wishes.
Wanted to add something - five Army Generals yesterday promised a thorough investigation into complaints that National Guard troops returning from Iraq got second class treatment at Joint Base Lewis-McChord to make way for the base's active duty brigades coming home from war this summer.
