An Air National Guard recruiter walks new recruits through the enlistment process.

Speaking to a recruiter does not obligate an individual to serve, and it is possible to meet with a recruiter several times before joining the military. Recruiters can answer any questions about the specific service and the military in general; they help match people to career opportunities; and they help prepare recruits for Basic Military Training (BMT). Also, recruiters welcome questions from parents.

Parents are also welcome to witness the last stage of the enlistment process, which is an enlistment ceremony. During the ceremony, a military officer will conduct the Oath of Enlistment, in which recruits swear that they will support and defend the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Constitution of the United States.
