Illinois National Guard

Mobilization Opportunities
The Illinois Army National Guard routinely has opportunities for Soldiers to volunteer to mobilize for deployment.

To volunteer to mobilize for deployment, send an email to and include the following information:
  • Name
  • Rank
  • Last 4 of your SSN
  • Current Unit of Assignment
  • Brief description of the position you are in volunteering for and your current military experience.
  • Example: I request consideration for mobilization as a Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic with any unit. I have four years experience as a mechanic and am currently assigned to HHC 111 Inf. I have previously deployed to Iraq from Jan 2007 to Jan 2008. My contact information is 111-222-3333 home, 111-333-4444 cell, and my email is

When you submit your information as a "Volunteer for a Deployment" it does NOT necessarily mean that you are deploying at once. Your chain of command is the approving authority and must release you in order to voluntarily mobilize with another unit. When we locate a compatible position, you will be notified by the G1. Thank you for your continued service to our great state and nation.
