How to Join the Kansas Air National Guard

The first step in joining the 184th Wing is to contact a recruiter. You can reach them at 316-759-7424 or stop by their office at 2626 S. Rock Rd., Wichita, Kansas, 67210. Or, you can click here to fill out a contact form.

If you've never served in the military before, you must be between the ages of 17 and 39, pass a pre-screening interview, then participate in a written and physical exam to start.

Qualified individuals will then go through a skill selection process, swear an Oath of Enlistment, attend a drill weekend, attend Basic Military Training and attend tech school.

If you have previous military experience the process may be a little different. For example, prior service recruits may be exempt from basic training and tech school. Please ask your recruiter for details.

 

Getting Started

You can start the recruiting process between the ages of 17 and 39 years of age. Once you're qualified, having passed the Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), the physical, and have picked out a job, you can enlist.

After your enlistment, you'll work with us one weekend a month (and get paid) until you attend basic training. Seniors in high school can start the qualification process if they're 17 and have parental consent.

 

Available Jobs

Cyber-warfare, Intelligence and Information Technology make up the bulk of the available careers in the 184th Intelligence Wing.

We also have jobs in ground radar systems, satellite wideband communications, and network security.

We have a wide variety of civil engineering positions for those interested in construction carrier fields, and law enforcement, medical and administrative positions are also available.

 

Part-time Work

Keep your regular full-time job or college schedule. The Air Guard offers you a part-time job that requires you to work only one weekend and a few weeks a year for a minimum period of 6 years.

Guardsmen work 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on drill weekends, and a brand new Airman can expect to earn about $200.00 for only two days of work.

You must attend Basic Military Training (BMT) at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas for 8-1/2 weeks followed by a technical school for your career field.

 

Full-time Benefits

The Kansas Air National Guard offers part-time jobs that will give you excellent health and education benefits, as well as opportunities you didn't know existed.

Health insurance provided through TRICARE Reserve Select gives you and your family full-time coverage at competitive monthly rates, currently under $50.00 for individuals and $200.00 for families. Most corporations can’t offer those low rates for high-quality health insurance.

Other benefits include tax-free shopping on any military installation, $400,000 term life insurance and extensive paid training.

The 184th Wing has job openings that are in high demand, not only in our unit but also in the Department of Defense and in the corporate sector.
