This page is designated for members of the Nevada Air National Guard and their families. It features links to available resources.
Our members and their families will be considered in our every endeavor. As stated by The Adjutant General, “This system must function! We must provide family support so deployed service members can maintain mission focus. Staying focused saves lives.”
The Nevada Air National Guard recognizes that our members are our greatest asset. Additionally, we understand that the service to our state and nation demands a great deal of time from our members. These demands dramatically increase during deployments and can place additional requirements and stress on the members and their families. We must ensure that our members have support before, during and after each deployment. Additionally utilizing the wingman concept will enhance our airmen’s resiliency.
Meet Service Members/Families’ Needs – Engaged members and their families through key volunteer programs and the member’s families themselves.
Care For Members – Relentlessly provide feedback, development and mentorship to our members in order to develop world-class leadership and talent.
Technician, AGR & ADOS Announcements:
It pays to stay in the Guard
By Chief Master Sgt. Michael Nelan,
152nd Maintenance Group
Suppose you went to a job interview at a local company and told them, “I would love to work here, but I only want to work two days a month and a couple of weeks per year, and, by the way, I also want you to pay for my college education and offer a pension plan that’s worth a million dollars when I retire!” I would imagine the interview wouldn’t last too long as the interviewer showed you the door. However, if you’re talking to a Nevada Air National Guard (NVANG) recruiter, they’ll welcome you with open arms and show you multiple career opportunities. Retention of well-qualified Airmen is a high priority for the Wing, so it’s important to stress the value that each and every Airman brings to the fight. If you’re someone who is considering leaving the Guard after your first or second enlistment, take a long, hard look at the benefits of staying in.
There are great benefits for members of the NVANG.
We all joined the Nevada Air National Guard for various reasons. Whether we wanted serve our country, be a part of something bigger than ourselves, pay for college, learn a valuable skill, or open the door to new opportunities, it pays to be a member and it pays to stay in the Guard!
