The National Guard was the same organization in the 1960s as it is today. It hasn't changed since the National Defense Act of 1916. During Vietnam 23,000 National Guardsmen were called to Active Duty, and 8,700 of them served in Vietnam, primarily in the Air National Guard.

I detect a problem as well, with your reading comprehension skills. Obviously you aren't capable of grasping the entire sentence so I'll help you out:

In my opinion, the only true "Alaskans" are those who were born in Alaska and those who live in Alaska year-round. Everyone else is a tourist.

If tourists are spending money in the state, they are welcome. If tourists are taking money out of the state, they aren't welcome. No tourist qualifies for the PFD check anyway since they leave the state.

Default tourists welcome, bring money

Tourists are welcome, bring money!

However, please feel free not to buy a summer home that you're only going to live in for two or three weeks out of the year. It drives up the prices for the locals and takes yet another nice house off the market.

The California real-estate market needs a MAJOR downwards correction, we gotta find some way to keep them from cashing out and flooding the (formerly more affordable) real estate markets in the rest of the west.

It is a simple exercise in Logic, "those who were born in Alaska (AND) those who live in Alaska year-round"

the use of "AND" is inclusive, meaning both terms must apply before the premise is valid, ie, requirements to be an Alaskan. If the word "OR were substituted for the "AND" then either of the two requirements could be a valid premise for the requirement of being an Alaskan, It would take one or the other, or both. It opens the field somewhat. Don't mean to confuse you with logic Glitch.
