"The most important part-time job in America.

The New Minutemen of the Army Guard share a unique American heritage with William H. Carney.

A Sergeant in the 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry Regiment during the Civil War, Carney received the Medal of Honor for heroic devotion to duty during fierce fighting at Fort Wagner, S. C. on July 18, 1863.

Outstanding black Americans still protect our country and our communities in today's Army Guard, of course. One weekend a month thousands of these modern day citizen-soldiers come together all across the nation to train and sharpen their skills. And you can join them.

More than 400 career specialties are open to you. You'll earn good pay for learning one of them, too. About $45 for just one weekend a month to start.

And with every promotion there's a pay raise. Another thing, we're close to home.

Army National Guard
The Guard belongs."
