National Guard Welcomes Summer Recruits

Posted: Updated:

As high school students finish their final preparations before heading to college, some are beginning to realize just how much that transition will cost.

And as they're looking for ways to help pay for college costs, many turn to the National Guard for assistance. In western North Dakota, recruiters say the last few months of the school year tend to bring in the biggest number of high school students.

From financial assistance to job skills training, potential recruits can receive a lot of benefits by joining the Guard. They can even get a head start on their peers in the workforce.

"The financial help is a big reason for joining.  It's never ever the sole reason.  The commitment, that is always there.  The commitment that I want to do something more, I want to do something bigger than myself," says CSM Rashad Schaffner.

Schaffner says many students initially consider the Guard because of the financial benefit, but they eventually join because of all the other things that the Guard has to offer.
