    Well, was just notified my application was accepted, and I will be sworn in this week by the deputy brigade commander. Looking forward to it!

    Thanks!

    I'll be with the 1st Battalion (formerly 1st Regiment), "The Alamo Guards," of the 6th Brigade.

    Correction, the 1st Regiment became the 4th Battalion.

    Now that I'm official in it (swore in yesterday), I guess I should know that! ;)

    Mostly assist and augment Texas military and civil authorities through emergency management, medical, light search and rescue, Defense Support to Civil Authorities, etc.

    The TXSG functions under the authority of Title 32 of the U.S. Code and Chapter 431 of the Texas Government Code. As the Governor of Texas has sole control over the Texas State Guard, it is not subject to federal activation unlike our Army and Air National Guard counterparts.

    It's all volunteer, and the only per diem is when you are on orders ($129/day regardless of rank).
