    When any part of the National Guard that is not in Federal service

post, air base, or other place where it is held, and of the troops in 
Federal service on duty there, remains with the officers in Federal 
service who command that place and the Federal troops on duty there, 
without regard to the rank of the officers of the National Guard not in 
Federal service who are temporarily participating in the exercise.

    The words ``not in Federal service'' are inserted to show that the 
revised section applies only to joint exercises involving National Guard 
troops not in Federal service, since 32:72 was enacted before the 
establishment of the National Guard of the United States, in 1933. The 
words ``troops in Federal service'' are substituted for the words 
``troops of the United States''. The words ``officers in Federal service 
who command'' are substituted for the words ``commander of the United 
States troops''. The words ``post, air base, or other place'' are 
substituted for the words ``military post, or reservation, or 
elsewhere''. The words ``that place and the Federal troops on duty 
there'' are substituted for the words ``there or elsewhere'' The words 
``including outdoor target practice'' and ``field and coast defense 
instruction'' are omitted as surplusage.
