About NGAUS: The association includes nearly 45,000 current or former Guard officers. It was created in 1878 to provide unified National Guard representation in Washington. In their first productive meeting after Reconstruction, militia officers from the North and South formed the association with the goal of obtaining better equipment and training by petitioning Congress for more resources. Today, 135 years later, NGAUS has the same mission.
About EANGUS: The association was formed in 1972 with the goal of increasing the voice of enlisted persons in the National Guard. Today, EANGUS continues working to advance the interests of the over 414,000 enlisted National Guard personnel by engaging Capitol Hill on behalf of the volunteer patriots across this nation.
