The Guard unit has reorganized from a maintenance company to one more suited for modern warfare and combat.
Article I, Section 8; Clause 15 tells what the grounds are for calling up the Guard. Clause 15 provides that the Congress has three constitutional grounds for calling up the militia -- "to execute the laws of the Union, suppress insurrection and repel invasions." All three standards appear to be applicable only to the Territory of the United States.
The Second Amendment "… a well-regulated militia [is] necessary to the security of a free State," and "…the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." The Second Amendment qualified Article I, Section 10 by ensuring that the federal government could not disarm the state militias. One part of the Bill of Rights, insisted on by the anti-federalists, states, "A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
I would like to know why they are taking my brother's and sisters from my neighborhood, my state, or ANY state militia, 'reorganizing' them into combat companies and sending them off to some foreign land and setting them up to be killed.
That reads pretty plainly to me. It is my opinion that this is yet another effort to limit any potential resistence from troops loyal to their hometowns and neighbors.
This disgusts me to no end. When did the state's National Guards become fodder for the incessant appetite of the fed? Do you think that they are taking them out of the picture for some more sinister purpose?
Even if, just for the sake of argument, the Second Amendment protected only the right of the militia to keep and bear arms, then the National Guard surely wouldn’t qualify as the “militia,” insofar as the Second Amendment is concerned: Firstly, the National Guard was created in 1903 by an act of congress - over 100 years after the Second Amendment to the constitution was ratified. The founders of our country could not have envisioned the National Guard, and surely didn’t mean for such a then-non-existent organization to be the “militia” that they referred to in the constitution. Secondly, the National Guard uses Federal equipment, exists on Federal property, and “federalizes” guard soldiers when they are called up for duty. As such, it is effectively an arm of the Federal government. As the Air National Guard website makes clear, the guard is structured so that each member of the guard holds ” . . membership in the National Guard of his or her state and in the National Guard of the United States.” That same web page points out that “most of the laws [concerning the guard] may be found in Title 10 of the U.S. Code,” further showing the federal nature of the guard. Given the goal of the founders of this country to allow the population to be armed, so as to avoid tyranny at the hands of the federal government, it defies logic to think that an armed force created and controlled by that same federal government would count as the militia which is intended to resist tyranny.
Over objections from all 50 governors, Congress in October tweaked the 200-year-old Insurrection Act to empower the hand of the president in future stateside emergencies. In a letter to Congress, the governors called the change "a dramatic expansion of federal authority during natural disasters that could cause confusion in the command-and-control of the National Guard and interfere with states' ability to respond to natural disasters within their borders."

you will find that this is happening all over the world.
Resident police forces are being replaced by foreign police forces.
In the UK there is a large 'swap' taking place with police of other countries at present.....all on the quiet.
Can't say how I know this...just do.
It would appear that the 'Elites' learnt during the Vietnam war that people will not fire on and kill their 'own' and so, in preparation of what is to come, they are swapping the police forces around so that they are more willing to mistreat and possibly kill people who are of another nation and not of their own.
