Why you should be a Patriot Partner

The Guardsman is the living embodiment of a true citizen soldier. However, the Guardsman faces many challenges in maintaining both roles to include deployments and mobilizations, family obligations, military and civilian job requirements, and other community responsibilities. It is literally impossible for the Guardsman to do it alone.

The National Guard Association of Mississippi, a 501(c)(19) nonprofit organization, was established in 1932 to provide support for Servicemembers of the Mississippi Air and Army National Guard and their families and foster the role of the National Guard in our state and national security. Since its inception, the NGAMS has carried the torch for Guardsmen of all ranks, from newly enlisted privates to veteran officers, on the state and national level.

Once a year on the state and national level, the National Guard Association of Mississippi is able to bring together the men and women of the Mississippi National Guard, both active and retired. At these annual meetings they are able to conference on issues that affect their daily lives, meet with senior military and civilian leaders and determine what priorities must be addressed during the coming year. This is also the only time that our members may come together to do this.

The Patriot Partnership Program was formed in 2008 with a vision of further developing and sustaining long-term partnerships between individuals and corporations and the Servicemembers of the Mississippi National Guard. The program is not intended as a general fundraiser for the association. Instead, the partnership serves as a vehicle for members of the community to contribute directly to our Servicemembers and their families by offsetting the cost it takes to participate in our annual conference and address these key issues.
