COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Army National Guard is actively recruiting.
Soldiers gather for unit training at one of nearly 60 armories across the state for one weekend each month. One major benefit of joining the military is your having your college education paid for.
The National Guard also offers the opportunity for technical training.
Recruiters in the Chattahoochee Valley area say one of the most rewarding aspects of guard service is helping Georgia's citizens in times of emergency.
"It is the oldest branch in the military. The National Guard was formed before the United States was formed, so we look for someone who wants to serve for the community," says Sgt. 1st Class Willard Elam.
