Can you go from army National Guard to air National Guard?
Absolutely. You may however have to change your MOS that serves the Air Guards needs.
The Army National Guard is a component of the US Army. The US Army Reserves, The Army National Guard, and Active Duty Army (regular army) make up the US Army. The National Guard (NG) do all the same jobs as active duty. However the NG has 2 missions which include to protect the state in which they reside, as well as the nation.

well 70% of the soldiers in Iraq right now are National Guardsmen, they are among the best trained for a reason Well...70% of the forces in the Iraqi war are Army National Guard, Army National Guard was also in a very important war...called the Revolutionary war, thanks to that war, America is it's own country, so yeah... the Army National Guard is kind of involved...this is exactly why schools should have military history classes.
Very few National Guard units were sent to Vietnam, even though the draft was in effect. This led to the creation of the Total Force Policy, which effectively established the Regular Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard as a single, unitary force, and is the reason the deployment of National Guard units has been so widespread in Iraq (both in 1991 and in the current operation) and in Afghanistan.
Good question. First off, do not go to an Army recruiting station. That's just for active and army reserve. You need to go to a local state armory and see a recruiter there. If you can't find one, call 1800GOGUARD or look up army or air national guard, they have various websites to help you locate the closest armory to inquire. All states have their own NG website. Good luck.
