The Maine National Guard is a professional organization of Soldiers and Airmen serving in all of the communities within the state of Maine. The Maine National Guard provides trained units to the nation equipped and ready to defend the United States and its interests all over the globe. Like Maine itself, the Maine National Guard has the distinction of having existed as an organization prior to the existence of the United States itself. Maine was often at the frontlines of American history. Consequently, Maine has developed a population of strong-willed, independent, and innovative men and women. These men and women have always stepped forward to defend home and hearth, from 1642 until this very day. Enlisting in the National Guard means more time at home. Training typically requires one weekend each month, with a two-week training period once each year. Get a degree with money for school, learn job skills that translate to the civilian world, make bonds that last a lifetime and earn pride for life. Contact a recruiter to find more specifics about your opportunities in the Maine National Guard.

As a consequence, Maine developed a population of strong-willed, independent, and innovative men and women.
