Best Answer

The Governor of the state is the main person in charge of that state's National Guard. The President of the United States takes charge of any National Guard unit at any time they want to. An example would be; the Governor of the state deploys National Guard troops to floods and fires around the state when needed. The President will deploy National Guard troops overseas to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan.
