My only experience with the Reserve Components as an Active Army Advisor to an Army Reserve Division. Probably comparing the Army Reserves to the Army National Guard is comparing apples to oranges. The major difference between the two Reserve Components are that Guard units, usually brigade combat teams or seperate brigades, are normally Combat Arms with their own support personnel & they can be put on active duty by the state's governor, congress & the president whereas Reserve units are service & support or training units & can only be called up by congress & the president.
