Shaping the Future of the National Guard
Every year, we develop Priorities based on grass-roots input and expertise from our Members: the men, women, and veterans of the National Guard. They are the soldiers and airmen who work in the field and develop innovative solutions to the most pressing issues. We take those priorities and work with Congress to enhance National Guard capabilities, equipment parity, and benefits equity.
Throughout its history, NGAUS has a record of success. Whether lobbying for equal benefits or equipment parity, NGAUS has succeeded because we push our Priorities on all fronts with experts on the legislative process and National Guard requirements. NGAUS is and continues to be the voice seeking modern equipment, training, missions and benefits in support of the National Guard.

Get Involved, Help Us Improve The Guard
Congress provides the National Guard with authorizations and funding to carry out its dual mission every year. Today, Guardsmen serving in the operational Reserve Component depend on predictable, sufficient, and stable funding. NGAUS's primary mission to advocate on behalf of our soldiers, airmen, and veterans is reflected in the policies and funding levels approved by Congress.
Task Forces are committees of Subject Matter Experts appointed to provide background expertise on NGAUS Priorities, Fact Sheets, and Resolutions, as well as to advise the General Conference on Resolutions. Working closely with NGAUS Legislative Staff, Task Forces are grouped into Army, Air, and Joint-Personnel, then further broken down by issue categories or weapon system grouping.
Even up close in Washington, DC, the legislative process can be ever-changing and shift on a daily basis. NGAUS on the Hill gives our members a monthly glimpse into the inner-workings of how National Guard issues are addressed in Congress. It also details our efforts on Capitol Hill in advocating for the men and women of the National Guard.
