Women have a long and proud tradition of service in the Air National Guard. From 1956, when Capt. Norma Parsons became the first female member of the Air Guard, to the present, women have played an integral role in shaping our force.
For motivated individuals seeking valuable career experience, learning opportunities, and an extra paycheck, service in the Air Guard represents an ideal opportunity. Members train for one weekend a month and two weeks a year, leaving plenty of time for them to focus on school, a full-time civilian career, and/or taking care of family. Moreover, leadership skills learned in the Air Guard are highly transferrable to civilian life, and some military benefits that come with service can be extended to family members.
