We'd like to enlist the help of all members, part- and full-time, and retirees, by using a new unit referral reward program that can make the 166th Airlift Wing and the Delaware Air Guard a stronger organization.

The Air National Guard Referral Rewards Program is a voluntary recruitment referral program where members who successfully help recruit a new member are rewarded with incentives. A potential new recruit has a second source of information besides a recruiter, so the Delaware Air Guard can leverage our people resources to keep the unit strong.

You can sign up online for this program in 5 minutes, and you are rewarded for your efforts. Prizes are offered for your referrals that enlist into the ANG. As a person brings in more recruits, the rewards move up in a five-tiered system, the fifth and highest tier being for those who help bring in five recruits.

Sign up today and get a FREE backback or duffel bag, plus an Air Guard luggage tag, coin, t-shirt, pen and pad folio (while supplies last).

The program website says, "The Air National Guard Referral Rewards Program was created for you - current and retired Air Guard members who are helping to recruit new Airmen. On this website you can learn more about the program, claim your rewards once your recruit joins the Air Guard, and find out about special promotions for critical AFSCs."

Master Sgt. Tanya Harris, Delaware ANG recruiting supervisor, says the program is much better than the former G-RAP (guard recruiting assistance program) which was limited to only traditional, part-time members, and used a dollar amount reward. Because more members can participate, it can mean more recruits, said Sgt. Harris.
