Job Description

As a Cannon Crewmember in the Army National Guard, you join a team that ensures the U.S. maintains its battlefield superiority.

  • 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
