The Air National Guard has announced an interactive Air National Guard Mobile Experience.
The hands-on, immersive experience takes attendees on a fast-paced journey through life in the Air Guard by letting them participate in simulated challenges that replicate the real-life experiences of Air Guard men and women during basic military training, technical school and on drill weekend.
Through simulation, attendees will learn how they can serve their country part time while maintaining a fulfilling civilian life, by serving one weekend a month and two weeks a year near their home.
The interactive experience, which will tour state to state until December, highlights the traditional career path of a guardsman, and is designed to educate Americans about Air Guard’s dual role in serving the nation and local communities.
The Air National Guard Mobile Experience features a series of three challenges, each simulating real-life roles and skill sets of Air Guardsmen. Through these gaming challenges, participants will be able to test their electronic, mechanical, observational and spatial aptitudes, hone their surveillance skills, demonstrate physical strength and test their medical knowledge.
The games are housed in a touring vehicle custom-built to simulate a mission command center and a guardsman’s home. The tour’s dual physical environments reflect the dual life of part-time Air Guardsmen.
