Let's talk!

The 176th Wing is always interested in new members. We'd love to talk with you. 

I need to make sure I have all the right information before I make a decision. What should I do first?
Your first step is to check out some of the benefits available. This will help you decide if the Guard is right for you.

Done. Now what?
Next, contact a member of the recruiting team. You will not be "pressured" or anything like that. A recruiter is an expert who can fully explain:

  • What jobs we currently have open 
  • More about the benefits available to Wing members
  • How to prepare for and pursue a full- or part-time career as a Guard member

OK, so how do I contact a recruiter?

If you'd like to ask questions and chat face-to-face, feel free to drop by one of our recruiting offices.

Full-time job openings: In addition to its "traditional" (that is, part-time) workforce, the 176th Wing also has some full-time employees. These employees fall into two categories:

* Active Guard Reserve (AGR) employees are paid according to their rank and time in service, like members of the active-duty Air Force. Active Guard Reserve (AGR) vacancies

Technicians are federal employees, and thus are paid according to the federal civilian pay scale. A technician is similar in many ways to a federal civilian employee. The main differences are that (a) they wear the normal military uniform on the job; and (b) to be eligible for a technician position, a person must also have or take a regular "traditional" position with the Air National Guard. Technician vacancies


Want to be a professional pilot or navigator in the Alaska Air National Guard? These positions require more extensive training than most other positions.
