The Arizona Army National Guard launched in 1865 and currently has approximately 5,000 Soldiers. I do not know how many of those 5,000 Soldiers are AGR Soldiers, but I’d guess it’s somewhere between 200 and 400 (please correct me if you know the right answer). If you are looking for an AGR Job in the Arizona Army National Guard, you have lots of options. The force structure consists of several aviation units, infantry, combat service support, EOD, military police, transportation and much more.
You can join the Arizona AGR Program by transferring from another state’s AGR Program, or you can start out as a traditional M-Day Soldier and apply for the program. As with most programs, they often hire from within their own ranks, but that’s not always the case. If you have proven experience and can interview well, there’s a good chance you could get the job you are looking for.
To get started, the first thing you should do is visit the state’s Human Resources Office website to see what AGR job openings there are. The jobs can vary from week to week based upon personnel available and force structure. Once you find the job that is right for you, you can submit your application and request an interview. It’s really that simple.
If you are currently serving in the AGR Program in the Arizona Army National Guard or have done so in the past, I would love to hear from you. Please share any helpful pointers or tips you might have about getting selected into the AGR Program in the AZARNG. Also, feel free to tell us what you liked or disliked about the program. Just leave a comment to share your thoughts.
Arizona is a great State to reside in. I know several people who live there, and being in the AGR, you are at the forefront of defending our nation from possible enemies coming from the South. No matter which AGR program you do serve in, thank you for your service.
