National Guard versus reserve

Soldiers with the Georgia National Guard 876th Vertical EN Company file into a departure ceremony before the unit deploys to Afghanistan, Thursday, May 29, 2014, in Toccoa, Ga. The unit’s deployment marks the last for the Georgia Army National Guard to Afghanistan as the military looks to withdrawal all but some 10,000 troops after 2014. Officials say the unit’s work overseas will include repair, construction, plumbing and more. Officials say the group from Toccoa will be deployed with nearly 150 guardsmen. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
