Air National Guard simulation at Country Jam

TOWN OF UNION, Wis. (WEAU) -- There is much more than music happening on the Country Jam grounds this year including the Air National Guard Simulation.

The simulation may come just in time for Military Day on Friday on the Jam grounds where those in the military will be honored for their service with the National Anthem and fireworks.

The simulation is towards the back of the grounds at the Air National Guard Mobile Experience. The simulation allows civilians to put themselves in the shoes of an air guard. The experience puts people through basic military training, medical knowledge testing, returning to civilian life and then testing our surveillance skills.

"We want people to know what it's like to be in the air national guard and be able to bring a little bit about the experience home. They basically work part time one weekend a month and two weeks a year,” said Shimain Rivera, the tour manager for the Air National Guard.

The simulation educates people at Country Jam about the air guard's role in serving our nation and local communities and they are recruiting at the location as well.

Fireworks will go off Friday following Kelly Clarkson.
