United States National Guard
One of the most exceptional armed force units in the United States, the National Guard is hard at work engaging in missions that protect citizens at both federal and state levels. To countless Americans, the ability to serve part time to obtain benefits and salary pay is ideal, while also simultaneously living a civilian life.
The Army National Guard is one of three branches within the United States Army besides the Active Army and the Army Reserve. The key intention of being a Guardsman is the ability to be a civilian and still serve the United States on a part-time basis. Assigned missions to a Guardsman can range from assignments at federal, state or community levels.
There is a wide range of benefits that a National Guard soldier is eligible for, as well as a monthly take-home pay for part-time service. In addition to earnings, bonuses and incentives are available that can boost the sum of money recruits receive.
Other benefits include:
• Retirement plans
The United States National Guard is unique in that it can offer comparable benefits
to those of an Active Duty soldier, but still allows them to serve
part time in order
to go to school or advance in a career.
