Will State Employees Replace National Guard?

As millions of Nation Guard troops are misused and abused in foreign wars, there is a shortage of personnel to fulfill their intended role, service during US domestic emergencies. A little bird has suggested to me that state governments are quietly enlisting state employees for emergency service. If that's not a draft, I need to brush up on my definition of involuntary service. Another wrinkle that has not surfaced yet involves state employees with prior military experience. I'd be willing to bet a few brain cells that those folks are going to be assigned more than just handing out blankets and water.

Did someone burn the US Constitution when I wasn't looking?
