The Washington Army National Guard is currently seeking NCO's to attend Drill Sergeant School and to serve as M-Day Recruit Sustainment Program (RSP) Cadre Drill Sergeants. Currently qualified Drill Sergeants may also apply to serve in these positions.
RSP Cadre Drill Sergeant Program (M-Day)
The RSP Drill Sergeant will utilize the skills learned at Drill Sergeant School to prepare Non-Prior Service Soldiers within the WAARNG for future success at Initial Active Duty Training (IADT). As Coach, Teacher and Mentor, the RSP Drill Sergeant becomes a vital member of the RSP Site Cadre.
Drill Sergeant School
If selected, you will be required to attend Active Component Drill Sergeant School for 10 weeks at Fort Benning, GA, Fort Leonard Wood, MO or Fort Jackson, SC.
Soldiers who are already Drill Sergeant qualified may be required to attend a 2-week refresher course.
Drill Sergeant Requirements
Drill Sergeant Candidates must:
* NOTE: A response of "yes" will eliminate a Drill Sergeant Candidate from consideration for the Drill Sergeant Program. Supporting documentation must be included. NCOs that receive a positive mental health evaluation following a negative mental health evaluation can be allowed into the DS program.
Drill Sergeant positions in Washington will be located in Spokane, Walla Walla, Yakima, Centralia, Camp Murray, Kent, Port Orchard and Snohomish. The number required at each location will vary.
All interested soldiers must fill out the submission form to NGB. WAARNG will then be notified of your interest in becoming a Drill Sergeant, and candidates deemed qualified by NGB will then be contacted by DS Chris Llewellyn to continue the process of filling out required paperwork. WA is currently ONLY accepting RSP Cadre Drill Sergeant (MOS Immaterial), not anyone for the Augmentee program. Once all requirements are met, a board will be held and an Order of Merit List will be established and Drill Sergeants will be selected from this list.
