    Richard there is a difference, although I would not call it big. State Guard are paid when deployed on State Active Duty. They do deploy, just not overseas and they are recognized by the US Government pursuant to the US Constitution and Title 32 of the US Code. They have to be in order to legally exist. They are a very important part of this nations ability to defend itself and to protect and provide for it's citizens during disasters. Just a point of clarification.

    Williams is a member of the Texas State Guard, not the National Guard. There is a big difference. State Guard members are not normally entitled to pay and benefits, does not deploy, and its officers and members are not recognized by the United States government, unlike the National Guard. Just a point of clarification.
