Welcome to a special edition of The OK Guard Show where we sit down with Capt. Christopher Buck and SFC Lori Smith with the Oklahoma National Guard Recruiting and Retention Battalion to talk about the great incentives being offered to people who are looking to join or continue their career in the Oklahoma Army National Guard as an officer or enlisted Soldier. Please note that all incentives offered in this podcast are subject to change and are not guaranteed beyond the expiration of the offer.


Remember, you are not alone. There is always someone in your corner, so if you’re having thoughts of suicide or know someone who is, reach out to someone for help and #BeThere.
