Welcome to NGARI
Welcome to the website for the National Guard Association of Rhode Island. NGARI is the only organization solely dedicated to advocating for the Rhode Island National Guard community on Smith and Capitol Hill.
The responsibility for ensuring National Guard readiness is directly in the hands of Congress, not the Department of Defense. The National Guard Association leads the way to ensure the Guard message is told. However, it is the responsibility of each of us to support the association that provides our voice in Congress.
Be a member, know the issues, visit our web site often, read the National Guard magazine, and participate in the political process…because Congress is our direct link to readiness and success.
