  • Soldiers must enter the leads’ information into the Virginia National Guard mobile app.
  • Soldiers who provide three leads via the Virginia National Guard mobile app who enlist no later than Dec. 31, 2018, will be submitted for an Army Achievement Medal and will be given first consideration for a “hooah” school of their choice, such as Airborne, Pathfinder, Sapper or other career development courses if prerequisites are met and there’s course availability.

When: All leads must be submitted by Sept. 30, 2018, and must enlist by Dec. 31, 2018.

Where: The Virgina National Guard mobile app. Download the app for free via the Apple Store or Google Play by searching for “Virginia National Guard.” To enter a lead, click the “Soldier Info” tab in the bottom left corner of the app, then click “Unit Referral” and enter the requested information and click “Submit.”
