We'll see if this is confirmed...
Just got a call from my son...driving home from spring semester at North Georgia College. He is in the reserves and attending the Corps of Cadets there. He is telling me something big is up. Just got a call from his unit that they are mobilizing immediately. ALL GEORGIA UNITS. Unconfirmed at the moment. Don't see anything on any big news besides Korea. Wonder if there is more going on there than we think....will break more as I find out whether this is a big deal or not.
UPDATE : Alabama Marine reserve units now too it seems.
UPDATE 2 : Minn. National Guard deployment largest since WWII
SOMETHING IS UP. Let's hope it's just a drill....

I understand your reasoning and it makes perfect sense. However, if this is a deployment overseas...ie Korea. Try to recall where the major deployments for Iraq1990 headed out from.... in the deep south and southeast.... gulf ports would be a logical choice for deployment also.
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea said on Friday the peninsula was heading toward war and it was ready to tear up all agreements with the South after it accused the reclusive state of torpedoing a navy ship near their disputed border.
South Korea said on Thursday it had overwhelming evidence that a North Korean submarine had entered its waters in March and attacked the Cheonan corvette, killing 46 sailors.
President Lee Myung-bak, whose 2- years in office have seen relations with the North turn increasingly frosty, was scheduled to hold a rare emergency National Security Council meeting to discuss how to respond in the wake of the findings on the sinking from an international team of investigators.
"From this time on, we will regard the situation as a phase of war and will be responding resolutely to all problems in North-South relations," the North's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said in a statement.

Okay I think people here are a *little* paranoid and quick to jump to conclusions.
It's been in our LOCAL TV news that our local troops are heading to the gulf to help.
As Alaskan's we kind of know a thing or two about oil spills...you don't need to be a scientist to help lay boom, or drive an oil skimmer. You just need able bodies to crew the task.
The National Guard can provide that.
Here -- this is what we are being told here in Alaska:
