National Guard Bureau chief says work will continue
from Knoxville News Sentinel
The drawdown in Iraq brought some Tennessee National Guard units home early, but that doesn't mean the Guard's mission will slow down, the nation's top Guardsman said. "We have become transformed from a strategic resource to an operational resource," said Gen. Craig McKinley, chief of the National Guard Bureau, just before he took the podium at the East Tennessee Military Affairs Council's 28th annual Veterans Day ceremony. "The National Guard is ready to continue serving. The president will give us his guidance, but the Guard's always ready to respond."
