I have to ask............on weekend drills the soldiers are paid by the federal government. Are these soldiers, and the equipment they are using, during the week paid for by the State of Michigan? Are the soldiers in the unit receiving time served as part of their federal retirement or a separate state retirement? Just curious. HOOAH!
