That is another great idea, kind of a variation on my theme. I was trying to consider the costs involved, and hey we are paying the guardsmen anyway.
Guardsmen have better things to do with the time we’re paying them for than babysitting kids, on the off-chance that a bad guy might show up at some school some day.
They need to be training in their MOS or AFSC, not pulling guard duty (badly) at grade schools.
The military is for war.
We are NOT paying them for what they need to do, let alone add-ons like that. With all the additional training burdens placed on our Guard and Reserve Soldiers (Suicide, sexual harassment, IT security just to name a few) we are already using 120%-plus of available time before we get to tactical training, maintenance or administration.
We are telling these guys already to go home and use their family time to do their on-line training, but we won’t pay for it. And it gets worse every time the idea-fairy drops another shiny object anywhere near the pentagon or Guard Bureau.
Costs? Let each individual carry as is their Right.
