A Look Back for the Holidays

Soldiers reuniting civilian with dogAs the holiday season approaches, On Your Guard wishes you and yours all the best.

We are signing off for the holidays, but please check back in January for more great posts.

This year, we spotlighted tons of cool jobs and equipment that you can find in the National Guard. But more importantly, we met amazing, dedicated Soldiers, like …

… those who responded to State emergencies:

- SGT Stanley Fortiz in A True Hometown Hero

- SPC Ryan Benson in Fighting Fire With Fire

- 1LT Skye Robinson in Telling the World What We Do

… those who have an unparalleled dedication to transforming the lives of others:

- SGT Eric McVay in Helping Others Here and Abroad

- SFC Michael Semeja in ‘Wanting In’ to Make a Difference

… and even those who overcame adversity in their own lives by joining the Guard:

- PFC Darlene B. Jordan in This Is My Second Life

- SGT Nicole Ball in Cooking Toward the Future

While you take this opportunity to look back on 2013, we look forward to planning another year of exciting and informative On Your Guard posts for 2014.

And as always, if you’re considering a career in the Guard, visit the jobs board and contact a National Guard Recruiter today.

—Happy Holidays
