What is the National Guard Association of West Virginia (NGAWV)?
The National Guard Association of West Virginia (NGAWV) was founded in 1959 as the professional organization of the West Virginia National Guard and its members. NGAWV is not a military organization, but a private IRS recognized charitable organization of military personnel. NGAWV was created to provide a strong, unified voice in which the needs of Guard members could be realized and supported. Your membership and support are very important in ensuring our collective voice remains strong.
