There's just one week left to set up your tax-deductible donation to the National Guard Relief Foundation via payroll deduction and the Combined Federal Campaign. The CFC deadline is next Saturday, 14 January 2023.

EANGUS is committed to helping National Guard members and families when they have a devastating personal loss or financial hardship; however, with the recent natural disasters and continued economic challenges, the number of requests for emergency assistance increased significantly in 2022. As a result, we need your help so that we will have the funds available in 2023 to provide grants to those National Guard families who are really struggling financially.

The Combined Federal Campaign provides a means for full-time National Guard members and all Federal Employees to donate to the charity of their choice through payroll deduction. Go to https://cfcgiving.opm.gov, scan the QR Code below, or contact your Unit/Wing Representative for more assistance, and CHOOSE CHARITY CODE 11859.

Donations to the EANGUS WCFA National Guard Relief Foundation can also be accepted directly on our website at www.eangus-wcfa.org/donation-3/ If you've made a donation or signed up for the CFC, "Thank You!" We appreciate your support!

And here's our "feel good" story to end the week....

The Alaska National Guard carried on its holiday tradition of conducting Operation Santa Claus throughout the month of November 2022. In its 67th year, Operation Santa Claus delivered 3,850 pounds of gifts and countless smiles to 581 children in Scammon Bay, Minto and Nuiqsut. The operation is possible through the 53-year partnership with the Salvation Army and community partners who donate, help wrap gifts and spend hours personalizing each child’s gift with a holiday card.

VA Starts Early Review of Claims for Veterans With Terminal Illnesses Under the PACT Act

The Department of Veterans Affairs has started processing disability compensation claims for veterans who are eligible under the PACT Act and have a terminal illness, weeks before processing is set to begin for all veterans covered by the law. The PACT Act is a new law that expands VA health care and benefits for Veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxic substances. In addition to terminally ill veterans, anyone with cancer; experiencing homelessness; older than 85; experiencing financial hardship; or a Medal of Honor or Purple Heart recipient will have processing priority.

If you have questions about the PACT Act and your eligibility, read more here, contact your local VA, or attend one of the virtual PACT Act sessions being conducted by the VA in every State across the nation this week.

The Department of Veterans Affairs announced it has started considering claims from veterans with fatal illnesses and will begin processing the remainder starting Jan. 1.

12/13/2022

On this date in 1636, the first militia regiments in North America organized in Massachusetts. Based upon an order of the Massachusetts Bay Colony’s General Court, the colony’s militia was organized into three permanent regiments to defend the colony. Thus, December 13, 1636, marks the beginning of the organized militia, and the birth of the National Guard.

Over the last 20 years, the National Guard has transformed from a strategic reserve to an operational force. Today, National Guard Soldiers and Airmen answer the call of both State and Nation. The National Guard is “Always Ready, Always There”, and has completed over one million overseas deployments since 9-11 while also supporting every State mission assigned including the COVID-19 pandemic, wildfires, civil disturbances, and hurricanes.

EANGUS is proud to recognize the outstanding service and sacrifice of the men and women of the National Guard – Happy 386th Birthday!

CALL TO ACTION:
S.5142, the Healthcare for our Troops Act.

EANGUS strongly supports this legislation which would provide access to zero-cost TRICARE Reserve Select (TRS) insurance to Reserve Component (RC) servicemembers. Additionally, this legislation expands TRS eligibility to RC servicemembers currently working for the federal government in their civilian capacity. Senate Bill 5142 serves as a companion bill to HR 3512, which was introduced by Reps. Andy Kim (NJ-03) and Trent Kelly (MS-01) in 2021.

Please write to your Senators and ask them to support this bill.! We also request that you share this information with other National Guard members, families, and supporters who can also use our Call to Action to send a letter.

On November 29th, U.S. Senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Susan Collins (R-ME) introduced the Healthcare for Our Troops Act, bipartisan legislation to provide premium-free medical insurance coverage for members of the National Guard and Reserve. This Senate Bill is a companion bill to the bipartisan legislation (H.R. 3512) introduced last year in the House of Representatives led by Rep. Kim (D-NJ) and Rep. Trent Kelly (R-MS).

Providing no-cost healthcare for National Guard members has been a top priority for EANGUS for the last two years, and we will continue to push for this benefit on behalf of the over 400,000 National Guardsmen who are currently serving.

Did you know you could be eligible for a VA Home Loan?

EANGUS worked to have NG/Res servicemembers included in the VA Home Loan pilot program in 1992. We also supported making the VA Home Loan program permanent in 2003, and advocated to expand VA Home Loan eligibility to include Title 32 service in 2020.

Are you taking advantage of the benefits that are available to you as a National Guard member?

Guard and reserve members may be eligible for a VA loan guaranty after having completed six years of service in the Selected Reserve or if the Service member has been on active duty for 90 days.

For more information, visit the VA’s Home Loan Guaranty website, https://www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/ and
https://benefits.va.gov/TRANSITION/docs/mlc-LGY-program.pdf or call the Loan Eligibility Center at 888-244-6711.

The men and women of our National Guard are an integral part of keeping our community safe. I am deeply appreciative of guard members—including one of my staffers—for their dedicated service.

It is my pleasure to advocate for them, and it was an honor to join another member of my staff as this year's recipient of the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States’ Eagle Award today for exceptional dedication to the enlisted members of the National Guard.
Can't find the Born on date, but there is a lot of dust on the bottle!! What year did Oregon have these??
This week I got to be behind the camera as a member of my team Courtney received an award from the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States for her faithful & tireless work on behalf of Oklahoma, the National Guard & their families. It was an honor to attend the award ceremony with Courtney & her husband.
Thank you U.S. Senator Mike Rounds and staff for taking the time to visit with us about the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States' legislative priorities. We truly appreciate your dedication and commitment to ensuring and improving the care and benefits of National Guard members!
