We have an excellent career growth opportunity for one officer (Lieutenant Colonel or senior Major) and one enlisted member (Master Sergeant or Senior Master Sergeant) to participate in the State Force Development Statutory Tour Program.
A developmental assignment will afford members opportunities to gain staff experience at the MAJCOM, HAF, or Combatant Command level. There is no guarantee for award of joint credit or location of assignment. The state will determine the tour length of between one and two years as well as the start and end dates.
We expect that the individuals selected for these positions will be in place by October 2014.
Interested candidates should submit a package through their Command channels to JFHQ/DS that includes the following:
· Current passing fitness assessment score
· Letter of Intent from the individual expressing reason and desire for attending
· Commander endorsement letter
To be considered for these assignments, packages must be submitted by COB Sunday, June 8th, 2014. There will not be interviews for these positions; candidates will be selected based solely upon the quality of the materials submitted as part of the packages.

The Air National Guard's federal mission is to maintain well-trained, well-equipped units available for prompt mobilization during war and provide assistance during national emergencies (such as natural disasters or civil disturbances). During peacetime, the combat-ready units and support units are assigned to most Air Force major commands to carry out missions compatible with training, mobilization readiness, humanitarian and contingency operations such as Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
Air National Guard State Mission
When Air National Guard units are not mobilized or under federal control, they report to the governor of their respective state, territory (Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands) or the commanding general of the District of Columbia National Guard. Each of the 54 National Guard organizations is supervised by the adjutant general of the state or territory. Under state law, the Air National Guard provides protection of life, property and preserves peace, order and public safety. These missions are accomplished through emergency relief support during natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes and forest fires; search and rescue operations; support to civil defense authorities; maintenance of vital public services and counterdrug operations.
