Job Description

Soldiers need energy to remain agile and alert, and most of the time, that energy comes from the food they consume. As a Veterinary Food Inspection Specialist in the Army National Guard, you will ensure the quality of the food that's being provided per strict food safety standards.

As an important member of a team, the Veterinary Food Inspection Specialist, under the direction of a Veterinary Corps Officer, inspects food designed for human consumption, while also supervising inspection and veterinary service activities.

* Identify unsanitary conditions in food storage facilities

* Enjoy cooking
* Preference for working with your hands

Through your training, you will develop the skills and experience to enjoy a civilian career as a food inspector/auditor or sanitarian with various government agencies and civilian food producers.

Earn While You Learn

Instead of paying to learn these skills, get paid to train. In the Army National Guard, you will learn these valuable job skills while earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition assistance.
