Annual Membership

Stronger Together

Since 1924 the National Guard Association of Tennessee (NGATN) has marched with the Tennessee National Guard to attain the objectives and goals of military preparedness that we presently enjoy. Since 2003, NGATN has proudly maintained 100% membership because of your continued support for NGATN and the National Guard Association of the United States (NGAUS). NGATN respectfully requests your assistance in maintaining this reachable goal again this year. The NGATN and NGAUS Membership year runs from 1 January to 31 December each year.
