National Guard Magazine

NATIONAL GUARD is the official publication of NGAUS, which has been in print since 1947 when it was known as The National Guardsmen. The magazine features articles about legislation and developments affecting the National Guard, with topics such as the defense budget, equipment, education, retirement and health care.

As a NGAUS member, you will receive this magazine each month. Subscriptions are also available to non-member constituents who have interests in the activities of NGAUS and the Guard

Benefit #2

Life Insurance

The SSLI is made available by the Officer and Enlisted Associations of the Iowa National Guard. Active, drilling, or separated members and dependents are eligible for life insurance coverage through this program.

During active Guard membership SSLI complements SGLI.  After a member separates from the Guard SSLI should be considered as a replacement for SGLI coverage because of the premium cost.

Benefit #3

The INGOA Foundation is able to provide scholarships through contributions from members of the Iowa National Guard Officer’s Association (INGOA), proceeds from the State Sponsored Life Insurance program (SSLI) received through INGOA, and from others who contribute to support this program.

The scholarships support outstanding Soldiers and Airmen in the completion of their Bachelor’s degrees to increase the professionalism, competence, and quality of the Iowa National Guard.
