The Governor of the state is the main person in charge of that state's National Guard. The President of the United States takes charge of any National Guard unit at any time they want to. An example would be; the Governor of the state deploys National Guard troops to floods and fires around the state when needed. The President will deploy National Guard troops overseas to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan.

No the National Guard does not have submarines. The National Guard is primarily a ground fighting organization. The Air National Guard does provide for air support within the US.

Each state has a military bureau, which is ultimately responsible for that state's respective National Guard units when they're not under federal activation. The National Guard consists of two services - the Army National Guard (ultimately subordinate to the Army), and the Air National Guard (ultimately subordinate to the Air Force). The Army National Guard is composed of the Army National Guard units of all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico. The Florida National Guard is composed of both Army National Guard and Air National Guard units in Florida.

The National Guard and Air National Guard can be (and have been) deployed. The Puerto Rico State Guard cannot.
