Welcome to the Missouri National Guard Association
The Missouri National Guard Association (or, MoNGA) was established in 1947 for the purpose of providing united representation for all Army and Air National Guard members of the State of Missouri (enlisted and officer personnel and Guard retirees). As the Association represents all Guardsmen and Guard retirees, MoNGA is better heard by the Missouri General Assembly, the US Congress, and other policy makers.
Simply stated, the mission of MoNGA is to improve the quality of life for all Guardsmen, retirees, and their families while ever-seeking to improve the readiness and capabilities of the Missouri National Guard in fulfilling its state and federal responsibilities.
The Missouri National Guard Association is officially designated as a not-for-profit, 501(c)(19) Missouri-based corporation. Offices of MoNGA are located at Missouri National Guard headquarters, the Ike Skelton Training Center, Jefferson City, Missouri.
The current President of the Association is LTC Charles D. Hausman, Missouri Army National Guard. The Executive Director of the Missouri National Guard Association is Dr. Joel D. Denney.
