Just Read About SC’s NG Troops

They, along with many of the other Red State’s National Guard members, will be returning home very shortly.

The stories about poor facilities, disregard for their sanitation/food/hydration needs, as well as the act of kicking them out of the Capitol building (the one that they were supposedly brought to Washington to guard), have had their effect. That, on top of total disregard for the risk of COVID in such close units, has led some states to pull the plug.

Some of the governors have spine, and concern about the uses to which their members are put. That includes:

  • Virginia
  • Vermont
  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Tennessee
  • New Hampshire
  • Montana
  • Arkansas
  • Georgia
  • Florida
  • Mississippi
  • Texas
  • and my own South Carolina

Texas governor Greg Abbott was incensed about the investigation of the Guard for “possible extremists”.
