The Air National Guard provides protection of life, property and preserves peace, order and public safety. These missions are accomplished through emergency relief support during natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes; search and rescue operations; and counterdrug operations.
Despite many obstacles, recruiting and retention have remained strong in the Army and Air National Guard. Both services still have many young men and women wanting to join the force. The men and women who choose to serve in the National Guard do so for a variety of reasons. The Guard offers a series of benefits ranging from competitive pay and education assistance to insurance and retirement benefits. A broad range of skills are learned through schools and job training, and leadership opportunities are numerous. Beyond these tangible benefits, most Guard members agree that the greatest benefit is the opportunity to serve their country, state and community.
