Title 5 conversion for the National Guard would modernize a now broken system. Once the dust settles after conversion, I think the status quo will stabilize and will not be a detriment to the readiness of forces.

As a Military Tech that is currently looking at losing all forms of income, this is a long overdue change. I have served in the Army for the past 22 years and as a Mil Tech for the past 8 now my state adjutant general is forcing me to retire from the Army and thus lose my Mil Tech well before I have the time needed to retire.

I agree with this. We have lost so many people who were highly qualified and skilled. They had to leave their federal job because their military service had come to an end. When most of these people left their skills and knowledge left the organization and many times those skill set and knowledge were not replaced

The fact that I've seen title 32 federal technicians loose their jobs just a couple of years short of retirement due to being non-retained on a QRB is reason enough to support this. The dual status requirement for employment is unfair when a person can work 15+ years towards a retirement and loose it to a QRB. Technicians should also be eligible for extension bonuses and Tricare Reserve Select while they are serving. My wife shouldn't have list her 6 year bonus just because she accepted a technician position. AGR are also not eligible for extension bonuses even though their Active Duty counterparts are, it just doesn't make sense and should be changed.

Title 5 should be left in place. The National Guard Technicians are the most discriminated federal employees. Please research this issue. Most politicians do not realize the injustices to this program.

Please leave 1053 alone. DO NOT allow a repeal of any type. Convert the Title 32s so that they have the same chances as other federal employees. Also enforce it on Jan 1st when NGB decides to ignore the law!

Although not a technician myself, I am both a traditional guardsman and a federal, Title 5, employee. I have personally witnessed numerous abuses of power by dual status supervisors: mostly when attempting to conflate their part-time rank with their full-time employment. Additionally, the disparity of benefits between technicians and other federal employees is shockingly absurd. Finally, I don't really understand the purpose of needing a 'military status' to accomplish the mission of the organization.

Military technicians who lose their military status deserve to have their civilian job. In addition the revamp would help with MSPB rights so please continue to convert 20% of the force that are technicians. This change will not affect the ability excepting of my new way for the adjutant General's to react to state emergencies and the governor to support their state. Also, the disparity between AGRs and military technicians needs attention.
