Clayton Mathis - National Guard - is our guest speaker:
Grew up in Huntsville Texas, graduated from Huntsville High School, joined the marines in 2004 as an infantry rifleman. Deployed to Iraq in 2005 and 2007, a marine recruiter, earned a master’s degree in Homeland Security. He was hired on by the Montgomery County Homeland Security and Emergency management, now also is a recruiter for the National Guard here in Montgomery.
If you know anyone that would be interested in joining the National Guard please let him know. A great prospect might be a veteran or someone who is active military who would like to be back in a military setting & getting to hang out with “the guys” at the base.
National Guard is a part time branch, one weekend a month, 2 a month in the summer. They have all the same jobs the regular army has. They have a variety of jobs available. College students are also a great for the National Guard. They can still be full time college students but get into a base near where they want to go to college while still partaking in the National Guard.
During the floods last May he was out surveying damages, a lot of National Guard vehicles were out checking out damages and making sure everyone is okay. The military vehicles have a snorkel which allows them to go through very deep waters. The governor is the one that calls them out. State guard differs from the National Guard in a sense that you are more volunteering then being paid, you are not enlisted in the military like you are with the National Guard. They aren’t trained in the capacity that the National Guard is. IN Baltimore, Maryland there were many riots and the National Guard was called out to assist with it. Qualifications: age from 17 to 35, there is an exception (prior enrollment in the military), as long as you have a full 20 years till your retirement age they can still get you enlisted.
There is pay & retirement are included with National Guard. You will receive medical benefits for the rest of your life. What is the commitment? An 8 year contract, typically 6 years out of the month & 2 years of ready reserve. Basic training will have base pay about $1500 per month with everything included(room board, food, etc), a high school student cannot be sent anywhere in high school so they can go to their trainings once a weekend & get a couple hundred dollars without being sent away anywhere. National Guard in Texas is around 30,000 enlisted and nationally about 300,000. National Guard is very involved in the border security right now, usually those that go to this duty are volunteer because it’s almost an active position. There is a federal law that protects their jobs for still being there when they get back from their duty. Without this law, there wouldn’t be a reserve.
