Get paid to get schooled
Serving in the Air Guard, you'll take home a regular paycheck while learning skills that will stick with you for the rest of your life. But that's not all you'll get. Whether you need college tuition, or help financing a postgraduate education or vocational training, the Air Guard will often give you the money to make it happen, in the form of federal and state-specific educational assistance.
Make it real
If you're a professional looking to advance in your current career or start a new one, the training you receive in the Air Guard can give you a great foundation. Many jobs in the Air Guard require Airmen to learn technical skills that today's top employers value. Since you'll only be serving one weekend a month and two weeks a year, you'll have the opportunity to immediately apply what you learn here to your civilian job.
