EANGUS is proud to support S. 1291, The Record of Military Service for Members of the Armed Forces Act of 2021, and appreciates Sen. Peters (MI), Sen. Lankford (OK), Sen. Tester (MT), and Sen. Moran (KS) for introducing this legislation.

For 3 years #EANGUS has diligently worked to educate Congress on the critical need in providing National Guard Servicemembers with a DD 214 to document their military service.

Too often, National Guard Servicemembers are unable to receive certain types of benefits because of a lack of understanding or recognition of the NGB Form 22, which is used to document National Guard Service.

Active-Component service members already receive a DD 214 for their service, and it is officially recognized by government agencies to validate military service.

By ensuring that National Guard #Servicemembers receive a DD 214, it enables them to have the appropriate document when seeking benefits at the federal and state levels.

EANGUS will continue to work with Congress to get a companion bill introduced in the House of Representatives.

Please join us in supporting this legislation and we urge #Congress to bass this bipartisan bill.

EANGUS is proud to support S. 1147, The Retired Pay Restoration Act that was recently introduced by Chairman Jon Tester and Senator Lisa Murkowski.

This legislation corrects the gross injustice for #servicemembers and #veterans who are not currently entitled to receive both retired pay and disability pay concurrently.

Military retired pay and VA disability pay are two separate benefits with two separate purposes. A veteran should not have to forfeit a portion of pay they have earned simply because of a service-connected disability.

S. 1147 corresponds to a companion piece of legislation, HR. 303, that was recently introduced in the House of Representatives.

We ask Congress to quickly pass this legislation and to provide our Servicemembers and Veterans with the proper compensation they deserve.

Longtime avid supporter of MSNG NCOA, EANGUS, and both Auxiliaries.
In case you didn't know, we will be doing the Norwegian Foot March / 30k run at Camp Shelby on 06 March. I'll be participating and would love for you to join us! https://fb.me/e/KUsjitSA
Hey everyone thank you so much for the well wishes! It has been such an honor to be entrusted to represent you all over the years. Even though I won't be working for the National Office anymore I am a proud lifetime member of EANGUS. I look forward to seeing everyone at the Legislative Workshop and partying with all of you at the next Conference! I will be continuing to stay engaged and fighting for members of the National Guard's rights, in that vein, check out this awesome podcast my wife was a guest on:
I do not know if my earlier post re Legislation was removed however I am happy to see there is a proposed bill in the Senate that would add members of the reserve for VA mental health care. The trauma experienced during 911 and other periods affected those not deployed as well as those actively being sent to troubled areas. Senate Bill 711 is a step in the right direction
Legislative question. Days like today (9-11) remind me that there are many instances that full time technicians and guardsmen do the same military job as active duty. I.e, Sept 11th my Logistic Plans Office was hopping from the moment we realized we were attacked. Yet, there are no VA or government resources for PTSD from hearing names of unit members who did not return from the attack or later when sent to Iraq. We do the work but if not on Title 10 orders it’s as if we are no existent. I am lucky, I personally had active duty service and am in the VA but anything that was done during my 20 yrs of technician time, noise from aircraft, deployment process, state active duty for emergencies, and so much more does not count. The Guard is the FIRST military group in the US fighting the Revolutionary War yet we are in the back for benefits depending on pay status. Is this an issue being addressed by chance? Thanks for all the Work that the Legislative Committee and Executive Director do

Is anything going on this year with the NDAA? The decision to shut down the Facebook group has less to less communication and I don’t really know what EANGUS is pushing for in 2020...
Just a note so please take it accordingly. About 12 years ago, one of my serving brothers died in service to his country after 3 tours. A year or so later I retired from the National guard and received my pin. Shortly after that I left my pin next to his national cemetery headstone. My question is: How do I find a replacement for the pin that I left for my brother on his grave? I would proudly wear it if I still had one. I left my original pin for him out of love for my brothers, I just did not take into account how much I would miss proudly wearing it. (National member since 1989)
When I was more active in EANGUS and involved with legislation I initially wanted more benefits in line with the active duty. What I learned was, the more Title 10 the guard became the more the responsibilities would be identical. I.e. being transferred to another base. I was also made aware the purpose our forefathers identified the militia (now guard) in the Constitution and under the jurisdiction of the respective Governors was to protect the citizens from a Dictator taking control of the military and misusing them as did Hi**er and Castro. I do firmly believe the Guard should have full veteran status even as Title 32. After all they were the 1st fighting force that stood up for our independence from a monarchy and have always been there during every state and national emergency. Remember the old saying “Be careful what you wish for”
