Job DescriptionFirearms and other projectile weapons are only as good as the ammunition that goes in them. That makes the storage and distribution of ammunition - all ammunition - an undertaking of paramount importance. That's where the Ammunition Specialist comes in: to make sure this vital job is done correctly.

The primary responsibility of an Army National Guard Ammunition Specialist is to ensure the proper receipt, storage, documentation, and issuance of conventional ammunition, guided missiles, large rockets, and related items. These duties might include the inspection, modification, and demilitarization of various munitions. You will also learn the maintenance of nuclear weapons, as well as the handling, testing, and maintenance of missiles and rockets.

The skills you learn as an Ammunition Specialist will help prepare you for a civilian career with government agencies and private industries performing ordnance research and development. You might also consider a future as a bomb-disposal expert, gunsmith, or munitions manufacturer.
