Missouri Air National Guard seeking 'top notch' individuals for B-2 mission
Missouri Air National Guard seeking 'top notch' individuals for B-2 mission

The Missouri National Guard's 131st Bomb Wing has maintenance, crew chief and munitions positions open for individuals interested in working on the B-2 Spirit Bomber at Whiteman Air Force Base.
WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. (April 9, 2010) — The Missouri Air National Guard at Whiteman Air Force Base has approximately 20 new vacancies for traditional part-time Guard positions in the total-force-integrated 131st Bomb Wing, but the work will be anything but traditional and comes with high requirements since it involves duties with the B-2 stealth aircraft.

“Working on the B-2 is not for everybody,” said Master Sgt. Krista Krause-Meier, Air Guard recruiter. “It’s for dedicated individuals who have integrity and a desire to make the Air National Guard a part of their life — whether for six years or until retirement — and to stay out of trouble and do a great job.”

The wing has maintenance, crew chief and munitions positions open for people who will work shoulder-to-shoulder with the 509th Bomb Wing, providing support for the United States Air Force’s B-2 missions. The wing has supply vacancies as well.

“We have to recruit top-notch individuals because we require a higher form of security clearance to work on the B-2,” Krause-Meier said.

New recruits must have little to no problems with financial or legal violations.

“I want people that not only want to come in and work, but ones that want to make a commitment. I want them to keep a sense of integrity and continue to posses Air Force core values throughout their career,” she said.

New enlistees who do not have a prior service record may be eligible for bonuses and 100 percent state-funded tuition, as well as some prior service members, depending on the job desired.

“Most of the career fields we have open have bonuses attached for those who qualify,” Krause-Meier said.

These positions can also be filled by prior service individuals who are looking to keep benefits up for their families and continue time towards a military retirement.

“Why get out?” she said. “Go Guard!”

The Stealth Recruiters, Krause-Meier and Tech. Sgt. Clint Daniels, can be reached at (660) 687-5449.
