The Missouri Army National Guard (MOARNG) dates back to 1636 when Citizen-Soldiers formed militias to defend community and country. Unlike other branches of military service, the MOARNG is a diverse group of over 9,000 Citizen-Soldiers. Men and women across the state have the opportunity to work normal jobs and attend college full-time while serving their country, state, and community. In the National Guard, ordinary people have a chance to work in extraordinary positions; both full-time and one weekend a month. If you're looking for a chance further your education, advance your career and be a part of something bigger than yourself; look no further.
