— The National Guard is one of the most well-known and respected institutions of government, and it’s now under attack from a new generation of activists who want their voices heard on the issues and concerns facing the nation’s armed forces.
In fact, more than 40 percent of Americans now support the idea of arming the military, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.
The numbers are especially encouraging for Philadelpi, which is home to more than 300 National Guard members and has more than 500,000 active duty and reserve troops.
In a city of almost 40,000 people, there are more active duty soldiers and reservists than any other state in the nation, according the Pew survey.
They also comprise more than 90 percent of the city’s police force and more than 80 percent of its fire department.
But what is being lost amid all the noise, fear and confusion of the past year has been the dedication of soldiers to service.
There are more Guard members than any state in America, and they comprise more of Philadelphia’s police, fire and fire department, according a study by The American Council of Trustees and Alumni.
They serve as an important part of the local government and are also crucial to the functioning of local schools and hospitals, said Josh Knezevich, president of the Philadelphis chapter of the American Council on Education.
“In Philadelpia, the Guard is a vital part of our local government, our economy and our community,” Knezyvich said.
“It’s time for us to make our voices heard and make it clear that we want to protect our military.”
A growing army of activists In recent years, the military has been targeted by the anti-war and Occupy movements.
But while many members of the armed forces have embraced the cause, some have also been vocal critics.
In 2013, the Department of Defense released a report on how the military is not doing enough to protect civilians from chemical and biological weapons attacks and other weapons of mass destruction.
In 2016, a military officer suggested that the military’s readiness for a new conflict with North Korea could be diminished if troops were given a choice between participating in a war or going to jail.
And a year later, the Pentagon acknowledged that the number of deployed soldiers and civilians could drop to fewer than 20 percent of their pre-9/11 numbers.
But the issue of national guard troops has been a controversial topic for some in the armed services.
In 2017, the National Defense Authorization Act passed the House but failed to make it through the Senate.
That means it will not be signed into law until the next Congress, and some members of Congress are calling for the Guard to be disbanded.
“The National Guard has not been able to meet the needs of the people in America who need it most, the veterans who have served honorably in the military,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said at the time.
The Senate Armed Forces Committee, meanwhile, is planning to hold a hearing on the topic in the coming weeks.
“We have seen the military suffer under an administration that is too focused on the short-term economic benefits of war, but not the long-term safety and security of the country,” Sen., Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), said in a statement.
“I am committed to ensuring that we provide our military with the tools they need to be ready for the challenges that lie ahead.”
While the Guard has been at the forefront of some of the military issues, its members have also fought and lost at home, often in difficult circumstances.
In March 2018, the Army lost its fourth combat veteran of the war in less than a year, the first in the Army’s history.
On July 31, 2018, a soldier in New Mexico was killed while defending himself against a hostile attack.
In November, two members of a Montana state militia were killed in their barracks in the wake of a suicide bombing.
The Army has also been hit hard by a lack of resources, a lack on leadership and a lack in leadership among members.
According to the Center for Military Readiness, the last time the National Guards was cut by the Trump administration was January 2020, when the Army was facing a budget crisis and needed to cut more than $300 million from the organization.
And even after the Trump presidency ended, more troops have been assigned to their home states than ever before.
In 2019, the number was about 35,000 soldiers and sailors, according and The Wall Street Journal reported.
“With the budget in a state of crisis, the president has taken steps to make the National Security Council more responsive to the needs and interests of the troops and the civilian government,” Lt.
Col. Scott G. Bowers, a spokesman for the Army, told The Journal in 2018.
He added that the council “has been more responsive in
