Practice of Army Values and proficient task and drills.
Pros: Affordable healthcare, networking, specialized training
Cons: Not full time, limited to promote
I enjoy everything about being in the Oregon Army National Guard. I've gained many skills through out my career within them. Typically a weekend at drill is detail oriented, planned out and executed in a timely matter. The most difficult part of the job is waiting on instruction from higher so that we may continue mission. There can be a lot of down time but most leaders give us pocket training to keep us busy. My coworkers are amazing, we support each other professionally without hesitation. The same goes for our management, out first line leaders are always on top of their game.
