Officers – LEADING THE CHARGE
Become a Leader in an Elite Fighting Force
The Army National Guard is America's oldest fighting force, founded in 1636. From the first Minutemen, to our heroes in Iraq, the Guard has always answered the call. We invite you to answer this call in America's finest tradition. Take the next step toward your ROTC scholarship. If you want to go to college and aspire to leadership in the Wyoming Army National Guard, YOU CAN!
It Pays to Become a Leader
You can pay for college with an ROTC scholarship from the Army National Guard. When you receive your college degree, you'll receive a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the National Guard. You will also receive benefits such as:
- Military exchange and commissary privileges
- Space available travel
- Officers' club
- Post recreation facilities
- Retirement benefits
Become a Commissioned Officer and your efforts will be rewarded, both materially and in terms of professional satisfaction:
- A Corporal (E-4) with four years of service receives $294 for each weekend drill attended. Compare this to $460, what a new Second Lieutenant (0-1), with the same time in service, receives (Pay current as of January 2010).
- As an Officer, you will have the opportunity to serve in leadership roles.
- You can look forward to increasing responsibilities and challenges.
- You will also acquire a wide range of management skills. These are the kinds of qualifications that are highly valued in both military and civilian careers.
