Our Mission...


The National Guard Association of Washington was incorporated in 1891 as a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the welfare and interests of the National Guard. Today, well over a century later, the NGAW has the same mission. The organization's primary focus continues to be petitioning Congress for the resources needed to obtain better equipment, standardized training and, ultimately, a more combat ready force.


We Are Your Voice...


Without your membership, our voice is diminished at both the State and National level. We urgently need your help and support.

 Please join the National Guard Associations and keep our Guard strong!
