A place where I love to serve my country.
Unit Supply Sergeant (Current Employee), Newberry, SCJuly 13, 2014
Pros: great place to work
Cons: long days sometimes
As a supply SGT a typical day for me is to make sure that my unit has everything that is needed to get mission done. I have to make sure that I have all my reports turned in at the suspense date. We use the chain of command to make sure that we don't jump rank. Working with other soldiers and leaders shows a great teamwork environment to get the mission – more... complete in a timely matter. The best thing I love about my job is that we work as a team and we communicate very well with each other. – less

Formations, switching from solider to civilian, inconsistency.
25 Uniform (Former Employee), Jackson, MIJuly 12, 2014
Honestly it was a great experience but I really would have rather joined Active Army than the National Guard. We had great leaders who where just about as lost as us. It felt like I never left High School, but still if I could, I would do it all over again.

A team oriented enviornment with great oppurtunity to advance
Information Technology Specialist (25B10) (Current Employee), Portsmouth, VAJuly 9, 2014
The Army National Guard is what you make of is all about what you make of it. If you come in with a willingness and drive to learn and advance then you shall do so and succeed. I typical day in the Army is a busy one and sometimes never ending as it is not a nine to five but a twenty four hour, seven day a week, three hundred sixty five day career. – more... From day one they bread you to be management, therefore, making the management typically knowledgeable and decisive. The hardest part of the job is typically being away from loved ones for long periods of time. The most enjoyable part of the job is the downtime with the other soldiers. I wouldn't trade it for the world. – less
