Does the Guv have the authority to bring home the OR National Guard from Iraq?

This morning on Nick Fish's very good, godawful early Sunday morning show, goobernor candidate Mary Starrett said she'd bring home all of the Oregon National Guard troops from Iraq.

So I'm wondering, does the Guv have the authority to do such a thing when the troops have been deployed by the President?

I was under the impression that only the Prez could bring them back. Does anyone have the correct legal references on this handy?
