UH-60 Blackhawk Crew chief (Current Employee) – Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base, OH – April 30, 2016
For me as a one weekend a month and two weeks a year guy, (that is my commitment) but as a crew chief that is on flight status I have to maintain a minimum of four hours a month of flight time. so i go up and fly on a week day at-least once or twice a month. it is enjoyable work and the people I work with and for have an honest need and want to work as a team to accomplish the mission.
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Paola, KS – April 30, 2016
Recruiting and Retention for the Kansas Army National Guard is a tough business. It is a very time consuming and strenuous business. Time from family is a regularity. The National Guard in itself is an outstanding organizatioin. Great benifits, great opportunities.
Motor Transport Operator (Current Employee) – DeQuincy, LA – April 29, 2016
A typical day at my unit would include many various tasks. My supervisor would inform me of what needs to be done. I would work alongside my co-workers to make sure we complete the assignment in an appropriate amount of time. The hardest and most enjoyable part of my job is working outside. I love the outdoors, but at times it is difficult to measure how the heat expands the fluids. My management helps teach my co-workers and I something new about our job very often.
free lunches, friendly environment, enhances team work and leadership skills
Signal Support Systems Specialist (Current Employee) – Ohio – April 28, 2016
If the Army offered me nothing else, I had the opportunity to travel and meet amazing people. You get to experience things that aren't your first nature and it was amazing. You get to serve your country too, so that was always a plus.

Specialist (Former Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – April 27, 2016
There was no typical day in the military because as a soldier you do whatever the above rank tells you to do. We drove truck by hauling supplies and other soldiers. I learned how to become a soldier. Most of the other soldiers are great to work with since no soldier gets left behind. I found the hardest part was being away from family during deployment. The most enjoyable part of the job is to just be a soldier and do everything you need to do to get the job done.
"Just Choo"- Personal Chef (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – April 27, 2016
I entered the National Guard a year after I graduated from High school. The atmosphere provided the structure and the stability I needed at the time. I was able to meet soldiers who had been in the guard for over 25 years. They became mentors and taught me self discipline.

Service Member (Former Employee) – Springville, AL – April 25, 2016
the most enjoyable part of my job in the military is that i can learn new things and understand how things were back in the days when my sgt's were in my shoes. A typical day for me is early wake up and then first formation, after that start on what was our daily routine of the day.
