Are National Guard veterans considered veterans for preference? I heard that although the state considers the National Guard veteran, a veteran, that got an honorable discharge, the Federal government has a different criteria due to days of continuous active duty.

Thank you for your posting.
For non-disabled users, active duty for training by National Guard or Reserve soldiers does not qualify as "active duty" for preference.
For disabled veterans, active duty includes training service in the Reserves or National Guard, per the Merit Systems Protection Board decision in Hesse v. Department of the Army, 104 M.S.P.R.647(2007).
