101 ARW Who We Are

Members of the Maine Air National Guard are a diverse group of citizens (students, workers, parents, prior-service members) who serve one weekend per month plus 15 days of annual training per year. By serving in a part-time capacity, Air Guard members enjoy the many benefits of military service while simultaneously pursuing their civilian careers, education, and personal goals. As a reserve component of the US Air Force, one of our primary missions is to the federal government in support of national security objectives. 
     When not directly supporting the Air Force, we fall under the leadership of our state governor to protect life and property, and to preserve peace, order and public safety within our state and communities. 
     The history of the "Air Guard" is a story of people like yourself. We are woven from the fabric of every community across this great state with the common goal of keeping our freedom and way of life secure from those who would threaten it. The Air National Guard is an organization that cares through service to: our local community, state, and nation. You too can serve part-time with the Maine Air Guard. Your hometown Air Force is the most important part-time job in Maine! Get to know us better! Women, minorities, and prior service personnel are encouraged to apply.
