Alabama Air National Guard Recruiting

Alabama Air National Guard Recruiting Recruit and Retain members for the 117th Air Refueling Wing.

Operating as usual


There are times when our aircraft need to remain in the skies, whether it be travelling between tactical locations, or providing air support. During those long flight times they may need refueling in mid-air, and that's where you come in, as an In-Flight Refueling Specialist, or ""Boom Operator"" on a KC-135. A calm will settle over you, and your hands will remain steady as you operate the boom to provide thousands of gallons of jet fuel to your fellow airmen, at 35,000 feet. It's a challenging, yet rewarding, career field.

Whether at your home unit or when overseas, you'll patrol, ensuring the safety and security of base weapons, property, and personnel. You'll conduct investigations into on-base incidents, apprehend and detain suspects, secure crime scenes and testify in judicial proceedings. You'll work with your fellow Security Forces Specialists for team patrol movements, tactical drills, battle procedures, and military peacetime operations.
