EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A nationwide Air National Guard tour is about to roll into the Chippewa Valley. The hands-on, immersive Air National Guard Mobile Experience takes attendees on a journey through life in the Air Guard, letting them participate in simulated challenges that replicate real-life experiences of Air Guard men and women. You will get a taste of Basic Military Training (BMT), technical training and drill weekend.
The tour will be at Country Jam this Thursday through Saturday from 1 p.m.-9:30 p.m.
Through simulation, participants will learn how they can serve their country while maintaining a fulfilling civilian life, by serving one weekend a month and two weeks a year near their home. There's a pull up bar to show the physical challenges, testing your strength and agility, as well as a technical simulator. It allows you to select between electronic, medical, mechanical or observational challenges. Inside the touring trailer, you will find an interactive uniform experience where you can digitally view yourself wearing the Air Guard uniform.
The Air National Guard Mobile Experience includes five separate touring vehicles. Participation is free and highlights the traditional career path of a guardsman.
