ABOUT USNational Guard Association of South Carolina
WHO IS NGASC?
NGASC is the professional voice of active and retired South Carolina Air and Army National Guard members. We serve as the local arm of the National Guard Association of the Unites States to represent and protect the interest of our nation’s defense and South Carolina Citizen Soldiers. NGASC seeks to provide a strong, united voice from which the needs of the Guard can be heard. Our organization is not military; we are instead an organization of military people dedicated to a strong national defense. Today we continue to deliver what we promised from the beginning – representation of our citizen soldiers to maintain the Guard as an effective national defense element and state emergency asset.
NGASC was formed for the purpose of:
- Promoting the welfare of National Guard personnel
- Promoting and supporting national security
- Fostering and improving the National Guard of South Carolina and the National Guard of the United States as a component of the Armed forces of the United States
- Preserving and perpetuating the history and traditions of the National Guard of South Carolina
In today’s environment, the role of both the Army and Air National Guard has never been more important. The National Guard offers the most cost-effective alternative for the defense dollar. With this added responsibility comes the need for more resources from the Congress and Department of Defense. NGASC is committed to fighting for these resources.
