Deployment Shoppers are guardsmen who ask states scheduled to send soldiers into combat to take them, too.
If a guardsman from Virginia is serving in the National Guard, and is not scheduled to get deployed for six years, they can ask, or beg, another state to take them on tour.
It allows for them to do their service young and early.
It also allows for soldiers to make more money than they would by staying at home.
Daryle wanted to serve early, so he offered his services to NJ, and their outfit took him. He was a deployment shopper.
