Alabama Air Guard getting F-35As:
It's ours! F-35 Lightning lands in Montgomery
"Montgomery’s 187th Fighter Wing was selected after being one of the five Air National Guard sites to be considered for the new F-35 Lightning II jet — the newest, technologically advanced fighter in the nation’s military arsenal — to replace their retiring aircraft."

It does seem rather backwards doesnt it?
What would the advantages be of giving the newest aircraft to guard rather than active units first?
The AL Air Guard has been doing a lot of deployments, so maybe it seemed like a good move Total Force and all that.

It is indeed all about doing justice to the Total Force Concept
