Job Description


Expand your construction skills and join the Army National Guard as a Carpentry and Masonry Specialist. You'll gain extensive, hands-on experience in the construction and maintenance of rigging devices, building layout, framing, and fabrication, and assisting in combat engineer missions.


Through the use of your basic carpentry and masonry skills, your responsibilities will involve general heavy carpentry, structural steel, and masonry duties that include the fabrication, erection, maintenance, and repair of rigging devices, trusses, and other structural assemblies.
