A service member serving on active duty in the Coast Guard would receive more money from their branch of service than a National Guard member serving in a reserve capacity would. However, the pay scale is universal throughout the whole of the Armed Forces - an E1 in one branch gets paid the same as an E1 in any other branch, thus, someone who is in an activated National Guard unit, or someone who is in a National Guard unit as a full timer will receive the same base pay as anyone of equal rank and time in service in any other branch.

Depends on rank and years of service.
The pay system is the same for all military services depending if you're enlisted, a warrant officer or commissioned officer. I hope that helps YNCSOHV
The pay scale of the National Guard varies depending on your class and there are also bonuses and incentive pay for certain tasks and duties. For instance, a newly enlisted Pr…ivate E1 makes up to $800 for annual training but a 4-star General can make nearly $10,000 for annual training. In conjunction with the annual salary, there are a variety of special payments like Active Duty pay, which is essentially double of the annual training salary.
If you want to be fully employed and kept busy...join the Coast Guard. Formerly under the directive of the Teasury Department, then the Transportation Department, now the Home…land Security Department...the USCG is very busy rescuing people at sea, enforcing the laws at sea (lakes and rivers), as well as fulfilling military functions in combat zones (war zones); Sort of a US Maritime Police Force. The National Guard (all 50 of them) have only recently been allowed to function as a police force (since the Clinton administration); however, the Guard is the "ole state militia"...and that can translate into "part time work." Additionally the Guard is primarily either Army or Air Force; there is no Navy or Marine Guard. That translates into strictly military and Law Enforcement (no or very few SEARCH/RESCUE operations). They are VERY different branches of the military, they have different missions, thus one is not better than the other, However, if you are looking for a career in one, it would depend on what you are looking to do and what skills play on your strengths.
No. Two different branches.
no it is not, its is it own branch of service, funded completely by the U.S. government. Not like the national guard the has state influence. Actually, the Coast Guard is unde…r the Dept. Of Transportation and the National Guard is under the Dept. Of The Army.
Separation in the military (used to be) SOP (Standard Operating Procedures). The US military is not "as military" as it used to be; it's nearly half law enforcement and half m…ilitary...so the Coast Guard and NG might bend alittle (with many new programs and loop holes available).
The Coast Guard is a fully federal force, assigned with the enforcement of maritime law and security. The National Guard is a partially state organized force (although ultim…ate authority rests with the federal government), and is a reserve component of both the Army (Army National Guard) and Air Force (Air National Guard). When called to active duty by the state, they are considered an "organised militia", and can be used to perform law enforcement duties. However, when activated by the federal government, they are considered federal soldiers, and cannot be used in such a role.
No. All 3 are different have have particular duties to perform.
You can google a military pay chart. They get paid the same as everyone else in the CG, the same as everyone else in the military. There is nothing extra for search & rescue. …There are different allotments that different circumstances will get you additional money. But your base salary is the same as anyone else in themilitary with the same rank, same time in service.
Yes, it is. Pay is set by the President and it's the same for the paygrades across the military. An E-5 in the US Army makes the same amount as an E-5 in the Marines or any ot…her branch of the military. The different branches just have different incentives based Military Occupational Skills and other skills or duty stations such as a board a ship, in a combat zone, remote duty station, etc.
The National Guard has a list of all colleges that participate in the G.I. bill program. See a recruiter or a training NCO for a listing.
No. State activations of the National Guard are paid by the state, while federal activations are paid by the Department of Defense.
In US Army
That depends on rank and corresponding pay grade (for civilian employees, it's GS rating), time in service, number of dependents, and any other additional allowances they're e…ntitled to. The base pay for each pay grade is the same throughout all branches of the armed forces.
In US Army
People who serve in the Coast Guard receive the same GI Bill benefits as members who served in any other branch of the military.
