Pros: travel, education benifits, meeting and working with a diverse group
Cons: time away from family, high stress enviroments
Working in the Ohio Air National Guard is a great career choice. Even though it is typically one weekend a month and two weeks in the summer, the days we do work are filled with fast paced training, hard work, and strong comradery.
I have learned many different skill sets and technical knowledge as well as management and supervisor skills that I will carry with me through the course of my life.
The manage and co-workers all maintain a sense of professionalism. The most difficult part of the job is also the most enjoyable, having to travel. Having been on four overseas deployments as well as state side missions, I have seen and experienced much the world has to offer, at the same time, maintain patience and focus while I am away from family and loved ones.
