Which is why it'd only be mandatory for the Honor Guardsman.

I attribute it to such laws like "mandatory breaks for X amount of work, yadda yadda.."

In my mind the Honor Guard would get more large scale action and would need more time to heal both physically and mentally. A GLC title would likely have equal amounts of Council, Honor Guard, and standard GLs. Then once in awhile we get a Kyle or Guy story on Earth or possibly staying in their Sector House.

EDIT: To me, the only thing the GLC comic has ever really lacked in was structure within the Corps. Just a little more could go a long way.
