The National Guard Association of the United States (NGAUS) is the Guard’s primary advocate in Washington, educating Congress on the roles, capabilities and requirements of the nation’s first military force. THE STRENGTH OF THE NATIONAL GUARD OFFICER.
What is NGAUS?
NGAUS is the National Guard Association of the United States. The strength of NGAUS has also been its united membership. As the voice of the National Guard on Capitol Hill, NGAUS provides a path by which National Guard officers can elevate their local concerns to a national and influential audience in Washington, D.C.
NGAUS members provide the backbone and guidance NGAUS needs as it ensures the National Guard receives the best and latest equipment; maintains readiness through comprehensive personnel initiatives; receives proper missions as part of the Total Force; and fights for equitable retirement programs that give Guardsmen the support they’ve earned. Commissioned officers and warrant officers of the Army and Air National Guard are eligible for NGAUS membership. Historically, nearly all eligible Guard officers have paid their dues and belonged to NGAUS.
Who Can Join?
Commissioned officers and warrant officers of the Army and Air National Guard are eligible for NGAUS membership as are supporters of NGAUS.
Are you a newly commissioned officer in the Texas Army or Air National Guard?

Your voice in NGAT and NGAUS makes a difference for example there was a point in time last year when the Army Guard thought they would lose all of their AH-64 Apaches. That didn’t happen because you and many other who are member of NGAT & NGAUS made their opinions know on Capitol Hill.
Membership in NGAT & NGAUS provides you with a voice her in Texas and on Capitol Hill. By joining with other citizen Soldiers, you strengthen your voice with our state and elected officials. In addition, you will begin coming into contact with other citizen Soldiers in the Texas Military Forces, thus strengthening your link within the Texas Military Forces.
