The mission of Oregon Air National Guard (ORANG) Recruiting Team is to inspire, engage and recruit the next generation of Air, Cyber and Space Professionals. The ORANG Team recruits quality men and women from Oregon and across The United States, to serve the ever-changing needs of our citizens, our great communities and the Air Force. The accession of a steady flow of highly capable recruits is essential to maintain a force with the proper distribution of skills. The Air National Guard locates the best possible candidates, and then develops them with tough, highly technical training; giving them the right skills to bolster the Active Duty Force, ensure prompt mobilization during war, and provide homeland assistance during national emergencies.
The ORANG Recruiting Team accesses more than 250 members each year. It places emphasis on recruiting people with no prior military service into more than 130 enlisted career opportunities. Additionally, the Team looks for prior and non-prior service officer candidates and focuses on recruiting chaplains and medical professionals such as physicians, dentists, nurses, healthcare administrators and biomedical science corps members.
