I urge you to talk to your fellow Officers and Warrant Officers, encourage them to join, let them know how the IN GOA supports the National Guard Association of the United States (NGAUS) in countering the current move to revert the National Guard into a strategic reserve.
Tell them that as recently as 2012 the Air Force proposed to cut the Air National Guard by 5,000 personnel and 200 aircraft a move which NGA US through Congress was able to halt. Or how INGOA supported NGA US and together were able to increase the National Guard and Reserve Equipment Account (NGREA) for procurement funding, proportional equipping and modernization and bring the ARNO to an almost 90% Equipment-on-Hand (EOH) level today.
We need your assistance in getting our membership to 100%.
