The Association exists as the only organization solely dedicated to advocating for the Rhode Island National Guard community on Smith and Capitol Hill in order to ensure that Soldiers have the proper resources and benefits to fight and defend our nation.

As a Leader in the National Guard, NGARI is YOUR voice in the legislative debate. The association represents your insight and practitioner knowledge of what our needs are, and advocates for those needs in visits with our state and federal leaders. Through a unified message, we argue for the right resources and benefits for our personnel to sustain our State and National military strength.
