Virginia National Guard Seal

National Guard

The National Guard dates back to 1607, when Citizen-Soldiers formed militias at Jamestown to defend community and country. And for over 400 years, the Guard has stayed true to its roots. Enlisting in the National Guard means more time at home. Training typically requires one weekend each month, with a two-week training period once each year. Get a degree with money for school, learn job skills that translate to the civilian world, make bonds that last a lifetime and earn pride for life. When you become a Guard Soldier, your family will thank you, your country will thank you and your future will owe you. Contact a recruiter to find more specifics about your opportunities in your Virginia Army National Guard.
