Army National Guard jobs give you the opportunity to serve your country without committing to the full-time base deployment as Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine soldiers have to commit to. You can still be deployed in a situation of need and have to leave home to serve, but the reasons for choosing the National Guard include:
1. No other branch of the military allows you to lead a civilian life with only part time service. You’ll give up about one weekend a month and a few weeks during the summer to training and a military lifestyle. But though you only officially serve part-time, you receive all the benefits of military service.
2. As a member of the National Guard, you’ll often be deployed within United States borders. Floods and other natural disasters give you the opportunity to serve your country within your country.
3. Just as if you were a member of any branch of service, you’ll never need worry about employment or finances. You may be able to serve full-time within the Guard if you choose. While most prefer the part-time benefits of joining the Guard, others make a full-time career of service in this branch of military.
