There is strength in numbers. As members of the military you are a part of the less than a half percentage of the United States population that has raised your hand and pledged your willingness to pay the ultimate price in defense of your country. It is vital that you keep yourself informed of the issues that impact your ability to complete your mission and return home safely to your family.
The National Guard Association of Mississippi and the National Guard Association of the United States exist to advance the interests of our Service members on the state and national levels respectively. In the current environment it is more and more difficult to advance or even preserve those interests. Join NGAMS and be a part of shaping your future and the future of your fellow Service members.
There are two options for joining. First, you may pay as an annual member. Upon retirement you then pay a one time retired life member fee. Second, you may join as an Active Life Member. The National Guard Association of the United States recently approved a lower cost for a limited time. You may either make a one time payment of $375 or five monthly payments of $100 for a total of $500. Just follow the links: Active Life Member One Payment or Active Life Member Five Payments. As an active life member, you will always count as a delegate at the national conference, even after retirement. Normally it takes 50 retired life members of the association count as equal to one active delegate. Having more delegates strengthens your ability to protect yourself, your fellow Servicemembers and your families. Have your voice heard and your vote count one for one even after you retire.
Further, members also enjoy a variety of benefits that include everything from insurance and other life enhancing programs to various discounts and privileges with a variety of business partners. Cut and paste the link below for more details.
