The National Guard Association of Texas was founded in 1959 by a group of Warrant Officers on the principle that it is important to have an organization speak out for the Texas National Guard and its members. Professional belong to professional associations and NGAT represents members of the Texas Army National Guard, Texas Air National Guard and Texas State Guard. Our members are both active and retired guardmen and women.
Why join NGAT?
As an American, you are encouraged to participate in the political institutions you protect. However, as a Soldier or Airman you are also required to separate your political beliefs from the uniform you wear. Military personnel may not actively participate in partisan political activities, making it difficult to rally together and speak with one voice on important issues facing the Texas Military Forces. The National Guard Association of Texas (NGAT) appears before various state and national legislative committees to speak on behalf of the Soldiers and Airmen of the Texas Military Forces. This is why your membership is so important. The greater our membership numbers, the more influence NGAT can bring to the political decision-makers and continue the fight on top issues affecting you and your family. Join NGAT today and make a real difference in the fight for your benefits and your future as a member of the Texas Military Forces.
