Applicants for you all over the U.S.There are National Guard units in all 54 states and U.S. territories. Of 358,000 Members, 60,000 or more are unemployed now. When units come home from Afganistan and Iraq in 2012, this is likely to increase to 100,000.
National Guard trains in 107 categoriesOnly one in four applicants are accepted into the National Guard. Members train continously in programs provided in 107 categories, from leadership and logistics to electronics operation and maintenance. They demonstrate a readiness for learning, responsibility for good teamwork and reliability, and understand how to perform in a disciplined organization.
The families of our National Guard members are at stake!The increase in homeless Members and veterans with families is testament to this fact. The implementation of an expanded employment program is of critical importance to National Guard families.
