Not sure how many, if any AMT people will be on this forum. Which ANG unit are you looking to join. Not every unit employs people in that career field. Go talk to your local Guard recruiter to find out. You can also talk to the unit direct. If you live local to them you might be able to call and arrange for a visit. One thing I will caution you with. If you join thinking that you are just going to be a welder, you might be dissapointed. You didn't really say where you are. If you are near a major aircraft depot, you might be a busy dude welding. If not, you will probably find yourself doing all sorts of odd jobs between weld jobs. Good luck.
