Serving in the Delaware Air Guard and the 166th Airlift Wing at the New Castle ANG Base, Delaware, is one of the best part-time jobs in America, and thousands of young men and women have joined the unit since our founding in 1946.

There are a variety of good careers available, each with varying lengths of technical school, paid training and generous educational and other benefits.

Recruiting was strong last fiscal year, with 97 percent of assigned positions filled, but there are still numerous positions open to people who want to join.

"As our manning goes up, we have fewer positions, but in select areas we can recruit in larger numbers," said Senior Master Sgt. Mike Davis, recruiting manager, Delaware ANG. The base can recruit up to four people over the authorized manning level in each Air Force Specialty Code. "I recommend to everyone interested in securing a position compatible with your skills and preferences to call our recruiting team at (302) 323-3444 or (800) 742-6713. The sooner you call, the more options we are able to discuss to satisfy your needs."
  • Current manning: 97.7 percent
  • Manning Goal: Recruit to four people over 100 percent authorized positions in each AFSC
