Is there a national ranking of homeschool curriculums or curricula?

No National RankingNo! Because each student is unique, and there is no way to do it. Abekka, Saxon, Alpha Omega and Bob Jones seem to be among the most respected. Miz

The above mentioned homeschool programs are all religious Christian.

IF you find the curriculum names that interest you then do a Google search on them for reviews of what others have thought of them. I have several that we love but others don't. It does depend on your child's learning style. I have two boys 10 and 15 and they do better on totally different curricula. ~Pandahoneybee

Do you need a security clearance to be a 74D in the National Guard?

Yes, pretty much any occupation dealing with CBRN - whether in the military, as a civilian employee of the government, or as a civilian in the private sector - is going to require one. Honestly, I'm a bit reserved whether that particular MOS would even be available in the National Guard.

How do you join the Inactive National Guard?

There is such thing as an "Inactive National Guard." There is also the Inactive Reserves. National Guardsmen meet one weekend a month, and train two weeks a year. Often they are activated and deployed.

Inactive Reserves may or may not be activated, depending on the need of the service. Actually, there is such a thing as Inactive National Guard. You will need the National Guard Almanac for a more proper definition. I remeber reading about it some years ago. If you cannot complete your enlistment obligation, you can request it through your commander. This is usually done due to a hardship or serious illness. NGR 614-1

What does the national guard do?

The National Guard is the first military establishment in the history of the United States. If is wasn't for the creation of the National Guard, the U.S. military today would be totally different. The National Guard is under the command of federal and state orders, something like hurricane katrina, and the civil rights movement. However, the National Guard is doing A LOT in Iraq currently. 70% of the forces in Iraq are National Guard soliders. You can join the National Guard as soon as your JR. year of high school. Basic Training is with active, and reserve recruits and AIT is anywhere from 4 weeks to 2 years long. You also have the choice to go active in the National Guard, but other than that you train one weekend a month, and two full weeks in the summer. The benefits are amazing, also. Depending on your MOS, you are eligable to receive a $20,000 bonus just for enlisting. You also get most, if not all your college tuition paid for, as well as the G.I. Bill and the G.I. bill kicker, which is I believe $807 together just for extra money while you are in college. You also get paid for your monthly training, and all you basic and mos training. The best branch there is HOOAH.

Did The Scots Guards serve at Dunkirk in 1940?

THE ROYAL SCOTS (THE ROYAL REGIMENT)(1ST OF FOOT)

The Royal Scots is the oldest Regiment of the Line in the British Army.

As part of the BEF, the 1st Battalion Royal Scots suffered heavy casualties covering the retreat to Dunkirk, and many were taken prisoner.

Mr Brown is correct, John Hepburns Regt.formed in 1625,later called the Royal Scots, Royal Regt. of Foot in 1633,was serving in France and Belgium, and at Dunkirk. But the questioner asked about the Scots Guards. The Marquis of Argyll's Royal Regt.1642 was disbanded and later re-formed as the Scots Regt. of Foot Guards in 1660,(also known as the Kings Regt.) in 1940 the 1st.Batt.was in Norway,then Tunisia and Italy.

2nd. Batt.were in Egypt, then Libya,Syria and N.W.Europe.

3rd.Batt.(armoured) were in U.K.'til 1944 then N.W.Europe,they converted back to infantry role in 1945.

4th. Batt.was a holding Batt. in U.K. 1940-43.

So I would think that the Regt. did not serve at Dunkirk.

My father won the military medal in the retreat from Holland, as I understand some of the Scots Guards may have retreated into Belgium then France and therefore would have been evacuated from Dunkirk

George W. Bush

How long was President Bush in the Texas National Guard?

Bush enlisted in the Texas Air National Guard on May 27, 1968 during the Vietnam War, with a commitment to serve until May 26, 1974. In his 1968 Statement of Intent (undated), he wrote, "I have applied for pilot training with the goal of making flying a lifetime pursuit and I believe I can best accomplish this to my own satisfaction by serving as a member of the Air National Guard as long as possible." He performed Guard duty as an F-102 pilot through April 1972, logging a total of 336 flight hours [1] and was promoted once during his service, to first lieutenant[2]. In November 1970, Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian, the commander of the Texas Air National Guard, recommended that Bush be promoted to First Lieutenant, calling him "a dynamic outstanding young officer" who stood out as "a top notch fighter interceptor pilot." He said that "Lt. Bush's skills far exceed his contemporaries," and that "he is a natural leader whom his contemporaries look to for leadership. Lt. Bush is also a good follower with outstanding disciplinary traits and an impeccable military bearing." Bush's six-year obligation to serve required him to maintain his immediate readiness as an individual and a member of a unit to be called to active duty in the event of a national emergency. Bush's military records indicate that until May 1972 he fulfilled that obligation. But from that point on, Bush failed to meet the general requirements established by Federal law, Department of Defense regulations, and Air Force policies and procedures for "obligated" members of the Air National Guard, as well as the specific requirements for pilots established by the Air Force.

Are medics allowed to pull perimeter guard duty?

No. They carry weapons for defensive purposes only.

AnswerNot only no but NO NO NO NO!!!!! If you are a medic, you are not a combatant under the Geniva Conventions, and are treated differently because you are charged with the medical care of the other POW's. Carry/use an offensive weapon, you are the same classification as the rest of the prisoners. AnswerWhile the second answer above is technically correct, the shift in current combat is to have medics carry weapons, and essentially consider "medic" as just another specialty for the combat infantryman. This is primarily due to the way modern warfare is fought, which tends to be between an organized military and an irregular (guerrilla/insurgent/etc.) force. Guerrilla forces are notorious for not adhering to the Geneva Conventions, so leaving your medic to be at the mercy of folks who don't recognize that person's protected status is unwise. So, sadly, medics now carry weapons. And, thus, they get treated as standard infantrymen.

What branch of the military does the air National Guard belong to?

Try everywhere!..every state has a dif. requirement, but enjoy the branches or jobs of each...til the end of the war that we start is near peace....Bradley SChroer...

The Air National Guard is a branch of the United States Air Force. Like the Army Guard the commander in Chief is the Governor of the state they are in first, then the president of the US ultimately.

Technically speaking, the various Guard forces have two "states of being", and, depending on which they are in, they report to different command structures.

When in a "normal" state of being, the Guard acts as a state millitia, and reports to the Governor of the state they are raised in. When in this normal condition, the Guard liasons with the National Guard Bureau inside the Department of Defense, for coordinating training and exercises. However, while they may work in conjuction with normal military (active and reserve) forces during this condition, they are NOT actually a part of the other force (and, are not officially under the control of any military branch).

When a Guard unit has been "federalized" (i.e. the President decides, with the assent of Congress, that national security requires the services of a Guard unit), control and chain-of-command switch to the relevant armed service branch. So, in this case, an air national guard unit would switch to reporting into the Air Force chain of command, and would be used as would any normal Air Force unit.

How was national security a factor of World War 2?

Prominent nuclear scientists warned the USA that being last in the race to make a nuclear bomb may well be fatal to person and freedom.The USA started and completed the "Manhattan Project",the most expensive and secretive undertaking by this or any country at the time.It turned out the war was won without it, but it's undertaking was seen as national security of the highest order.This is only one answer but certainly one that must be discussed.

How do you send a letter to National Guard member in boot camp?

You would need to what unit they're assigned to. The address would read out

(Service member's name - roster number optional)

(Unit - for example, "A 1/38 IN")

(Post.. would be written out just like city and state, for example, "Fort Benning, GA" or "Fort Jackson, SC", or "Fort Sill, OK", etc.)

And the zip code at the bottom.

And you just mail it the way you would any other letter.

Can you send cookies to someone in the army National Guard basic training?

There is no Army National Guard Basic Training - they all go to Army BCT or OSUT. That being said, you can send them - that part isn't an issue. Whether they're allowed to actually have the cookies or not is a different matter. Depending on their Drill Sergeant and their unit, they may either not be allowed to have them, or only be allowed to have them if there's enough to share with their entire platoon.

Better to just save the cookies for when they get back.
