AGAUS Principles

AGAUS supports the Department of Defense transformation plans that acknowledge the National Guard as an operational force. We must integrate the National Guard as a full partner in America's 21st Century Force across the full spectrum of Army and Air Force operations, while recognizing the unique dual responsibilities of the National Guard to their Governors and other civilian authorities in times of domestic emergency and disaster.

On behalf of the men and women of the National Guard, AGAUS advocates for the modernization of equipment and facilities and all policies and plans that promote the enhanced integration of the National Guard into the Department of Defense.

AGAUS strongly urges Congress enact legislation which further establishes the National Guard as an operational force.
