Welcome to the Missouri National Guard Association
The Missouri National Guard Association (or, MoNGA) was established in 1947 for the purpose of providing united representation for all Army and Air National Guard members of the State of Missouri (enlisted and officer personnel and Guard retirees). As the Association represents all Guardsmen and Guard retirees, MoNGA is better heard by the Missouri General Assembly, the US Congress, and other policy makers.
Simply stated, the mission of MoNGA is to improve the quality of life for all Guardsmen, retirees, and their families while ever-seeking to improve the readiness and capabilities of the Missouri National Guard in fulfilling its state and federal responsibilities.
The Missouri National Guard Association is officially designated as a not-for-profit, 501(c)(19) Missouri-based corporation. Offices of MoNGA are located at Missouri National Guard headquarters, the Ike Skelton Training Center, Jefferson City, Missouri.
The current President of the Association is Colonel Timothy M. Jones, Chief of Staff, Missouri Air National Guard. MoNGA's President Elect is CW5 Michelle R. Struemph, Command Chief Warrant Officer, Missouri Army National Guard. The Executive Director of the Missouri National Guard Association is Dr. Joel D. Denney.
For Annual members of the Missouri National Guard Association, it's time to re-invest in the total Guard experience and remit dues to MoNGA for the 2015 member year. Dues paid for 2015 any time after 1 October 2014 will keep a member "dues current" until 1 January 2016.

D-Day/Normandy Battlefield Tour Announced:
Reservation Deadline is 1 July 2015
The Missouri National Guard Association has announced that in October of this year (2-8 October), the Association is planning its inaugural tour of D-Day/Normandy Battlefields in France. To see an e-brochure with details about this trip, 'click' BROCHURE-D-Day_Battlefield_T.pdf. Be mindful that 1 July is the deadline for making a reservation on the trip. To download (and print) a tour reservation form for submission, 'click' RESERVATION_FORM-D-Day_Batt.docx.
The D-Day/Normandy Battlefield Tour will provide a tangible example of the importance of never forgetting the sacrifice that has been made by so many in the interests of democracy and the preservation of the American way of life. Further, the tour will be a reminder of the value of passing on to others, especially to our youth, that democracy and our freedoms have come with a high cost. The trip is designed to directly benefit the NGEF--the National Guard Educational Foundation of NGAUS. The NGEF expends considerable effort in promoting the rich legacy of the National Guard.
The D-Day/Normandy Battlefield Tour will be an intimate, personally guided trip. It will be limited to twenty persons--making a reservation as soon as possible is strongly suggested. MG Stephen L. Danner, Immediate Past NGAUS Chairman, and Mrs. Danner will head the tour. Among the sites visited on the tour will be the National Guard Monument at Omaha Beach. It is anticipated the tour will attract current and former National Guard men and women, other current and former military personnel, and industry representatives--from Missouri and elsewhere. The trip is but the first of such tours for future years. To be a part of the inaugural trip will hold special meaning.
