PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The Patrick Air Force Base community has a new In-Service Recruiter for the Air National Guard.
Tech. Sgt. Susan Faucett helps active duty Air Force members apply for Palace Chase or Palace Front programs so they may continue their military service, anywhere in the nation.
"I'm helping active duty members with figuring out their pre-qualifications, giving them instructions on how to apply and putting them in touch with a unit recruiter where they are looking to be assigned," she said. "The Air National Guard is in every U.S. state and U.S. territory therefore, making it easier to get back home and continue with military service."
In the Air Guard, members are a resource for the state they are assigned and help protect the citizens of that state, assisting in national and state emergencies.
"Guard members receive educational benefits - tuition assistance and Montgomery GI Bill; Tricare and dental health care; regular paychecks; base exchange, commissary, fitness center and other services privileges; fishing and hunting licenses; entrance to state parks; and military retirement," said Sergeant Faucett.
Although working out of MacDill AFB, Fla., she visits Patrick AFB quarterly, when she is available for face-to-face appointments. She also assists interested applicants via telephone or email.
Contact her by phone 813-828-3981, DSN 968-3981, or email susan.faucett@ us.af.mil.
