### Job Description
As a Cannon Crewmember in the Army National Guard, you join a team that ensures the U.S. maintains its battlefield superiority. You will have the opportunity to learn and use high-tech cannon artillery weapons systems and artillery tactics and strategy - both of which translate into comparable civilian skills, such as familiarity with technology, strategic thinking, and decisiveness.

Setting, loading, and firing artillery
Using computers to generate fire direction data
Operating heavy and light wheeled trucks and tracked vehicles
Transporting and managing artillery ammunition
Maintaining operational readiness of vehicles and equipment
And as your skills increase, so will your responsibilities. Advanced Crewmembers supervise other crewmembers in the distribution of ammunition, as well as manage cannon operations, training, and maintenance.
Earn while you learn
Get paid to learn! Join the Guard and you will learn valuable job skills while earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition assistance.
Job training for a Cannon Crewmember requires 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you learn basic Soldiering skills. Then you will attend Advanced Individual Training (AIT), which consists of 14 weeks of additional training. Part of this time is spent in a classroom and part in the field under simulated combat conditions.
Applicants must meet minimum qualifications. Actual MOS assignment may depend on MOS availability. Benefits subject to change.
