No matter how you found us online, whether you’re just curious about what the Army National Guard does, or you’re thinking about joining the military, we’d love for you to stick around. We’ve got some stories to tell, straight from the men and women who serve their communities and their Nation in this unique capacity.
Guard Soldiers come from all walks of life. They serve, part-time, in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, plus three U.S. Territories. Some join because of their deep sense of patriotism, their love for adventure, or as a means to pay for college or get training in one of 150 different career fields – all of which can be explored on our job board.
If there’s one theme that stands out from talking with Soldiers in this blog over the years, it’s that what Soldiers find is so much more than what they were looking for from the Army National Guard experience in the first place. For example:
- The training you’ll get often translates directly to a civilian career, plus the Guard’s generous tuition assistance programs will help you earn a degree without going into major debt.
- You’ll be tested mentally and physically, and find out you can do more than you thought possible. Plus, there’s a whole team behind you who won’t let you give up.
- There’s nothing more rewarding than helping your neighbors or your Nation when they need you most.
So stay tuned to On Your Guard for stories about Soldiers’ journeys. The next chapter in your story could start with the Army National Guard.
