Pros: Teamwork, effective leadership, endless training opportunities, honor in serving
Cons: deployment is always a possibility, but takes time away from our familes
The Tennessee Army National Guard participates in domestic and foreign service to this great country. We assist in times of riot, during inclement weather, we support our local government and often assist with security at local events. We deploy to serve overseas along side the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. We receive endless training opportunities and take pride in helping the communities in Tennessee. We live to serve and are proud to fight for our freedom when called upon to do so. Those in the Tennessee Army National Guard also choose a variety of career fields outside of their Military Reserve services. We have everything from SWAT team members to Computer programmers to Ministers to Musicians and actors within our ranks. The diversity is amazing and the individuals are all volunteers considered brothers and sisters to us all. The culture is that of family. We respect each other and work as a team.
