AGLO 1979 NO. 22 >

(1) Under RCW 38.12.030 the governor, in appointing the state adjutant general, is required to order said appointee to active service as defined by RCW 38.04.010 and RCW 38.38.004.

(2) In view of those statutory definitions, the position of state adjutant general must be deemed to be a full-time job; while this does not mean that the adjutant general may not also have some other employment, it does mean that any such other employment must be secondary to the state position.
