Welcome to the National Guard Association of Michigan

The National Guard Association of Michigan (NGAM) exists to advance the interests of the Michigan National Guard. Formed in 1956, NGAM has a 60-year tradition of providing services to its members and support for their families.  In 1962, we were incorporated as a 501(c)19 non-profit veterans organization.




Ready to roll the dice in Vegas with NGAM, NGUAS, and all 54 states and territories.

While the rain may have stopped the golf tournament early, that didn't keep everyone from having some fun.

Especially to Rhea Pruett who, on the first swing of the first hole, hit this HOLE IN ONE!!!!
