*Obviously this is just my best guess. The most detailed info I have to date is an estimated 3,000 deployed to Iraq in 2007 per the NG website. I estimate that only 25% of the total force being effected by "Mayor McCheese's" order due to the assumption that roughly 3,000 of the 32nd Division remain deployed overseas for other reasons, and a naive guess as to the required number of active troops to maintain base level operations described on their web sites. Frankly, this is a totally naive guess, but I'd be more than happy to entertain the suggestions of those who may reasonably be expected to know more.

** This is an even more naïve guess. I'm not a military man, and have no idea as to the required staffing levels for each type of unit's operations. Just making an estimate based on my own experience in large business organizations and subjective assumptions about relative efficiency of each pay grade. Again, I'm more than happy to entertain informed alternative views.
