The North Carolina National Guard Association manages our State’s NGAUS and EANGUS participation. We encourage you to consider joining both of these partner organizations.
The National Guard Association of the United States is the nation’s oldest military association lobbying solely for the benefit of the National Guard of the United States and educating the public about the Guard’s role and history in the Armed Forces of the United States. It was formed by militia officers in 1878 to obtain better equipment and training by petitioning Congress for more resources.
NGAUS achieves its mission through its lobbying and legislative activities. We are also dedicated to educating the public, through our partnership with the about our service to the nation through various outreach programs, publications, and support of a museum and research library dedicated to the preservation of the Guard’s history.

The Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States (EANGUS) was formally organized in 1972 with the goal of increasing the voice of enlisted persons in the National Guard. As such, EANGUS is a non-profit organization dedicated to the principles of providing an adequate national defense and promoting the status, welfare, and professionalism of the men and women of the Army and Air National Guard by supporting legislation that provides adequate staffing, pay, benefits, entitlements, equipment, and installations for the National Guard.
Beginning with twenty-three states, EANGUS now represents all 50 states, Guam, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and the District of Columbia, and has an association comprised of those who serve the National Guard on national tour. With a constituency base of over 414,000 soldiers and airmen, their families, as well as thousands of retired members, and headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, a stone’s throw from Washington DC, EANGUS maintains a full-time staff to represent your interests to the Pentagon and on Capitol Hill.
