222nd is a great unit with great people inside of it. They care and and actively want to help you. It is a relatively new unit but they have their eyes on the prize and have gone above and beyond the milestones required of them.
One of the best enviroments out of any guard unit I have seen, Get to see a lot of great things happening around the world
Although they are getting better at it, new airmen might want to ask the newer members on some pit falls, Might require some travel outside of state

Boring place to work. Very slow paced. Everyone thinks they are Captain America, even though none of them actually served Active Duty. A lot of sitting around and watching t.v or doing computer based training. To make rank, you basically have to hope someone leaves, retires or gets kicked out.

The Air National Guard is a great place for an entry into adult life and teaching young adults how to act and prioritize things in life. Very bad at taking care of you though when it comes to anything you need to personally do/get done.
A typical day at work is training younger airman about a service organization what to expect and what the customer expects. I have learned that new people are eager to learn more and more. As a manager I give them all that they want to do their job well. The management in my organization is great to work with. The culture is getting to be a very young culture. I have found nothing hard about this job. The most enjoyable part is that I get to serve my country.

It is great place to to go to get a stable start on your life and career if you are looking into a specific job and not quite sure if that's what you truly wanna do with yourself. College is paid for along with technical skills and basic life necessities at your disposal. Travel the world while learning a life skill, what more can you ask for?

Going through basic training was a good experience that I believe everyone should go through. Basic training will teach you very valuable skills and help you realize you can push yourself a lot farther mentally and physically than you imagined.

I have worked for the UTANG as a Traditional guardsman, Technician (state employee) and AGR. Typical workday varies by career field. I have learned valuable leadership as well as follower-ship skill while serving. Management is ever changing due to retirements and others moving on. Just like any other job you have some you like and some you don't. Culture can be as a family, but they will turn their backs if they deem it best for their own careers! Hardest part of the job is playing the political game. The most enjoyable part of the UTANG is and will always be the people. You can and will meet long time mentors and friends.

A regular day in the ANG is always a learning experience. There are popular systems that we work on constantly but then there are days where you do something you thought you would never touch. One day I can be replacing a generator and the next putting together a light assembly. When the shop is light on work we can always experience another side of the jet by going to the crew chiefs shop and learning new inspections or how to taxi jets on and off the flight line.
