Army National Guard Recruitment

WHITNEY POINT (WBNG) -- If looking to learn more about the New York Army National Guard, a Newbsanity obstacle course is going to be offered exclusively for the National Guard and guests.

Guests will be able to partake in the drill June 12 at 1 p.m. once paperwork has been filled out.

Though the event is centered around fun and challenging the mind and body, according to Sergeant First Class Marlana Watson, it will also serve as a recruiting tool.

"We want them to see what we're doing," she said. "We're one of the only components [that] allow them to come to a drill weekend as a guest before they join just to see how they like it."

"We want happy soldiers, we want people to know what they're getting themselves into. So this is a great opportunity to see what we do and hopefully one day they will be joining the team," she said.

Contact the local National Guard if you want to attend this weekend's drill.
