What does the Association do?
The Louisiana National Guard Enlisted Association (LANGEA) educates elected officials at the State and National level on the benefits of the Enlisted Personnel of the National Guard as well as the Retired Enlisted Personnel.
This is accomplished through direct contact with legislators and through phone calls and e-mails to their Aides. The Association participates in trips to Washington helping to educate our legislators on the needs of the National Guard Personnel. Association members attend the Annual National Convention to show support for and vote on proposed legislation that will benefit the Guard as a whole. The National Association will lobby for these pieces of legislation before congress and senate leaders on behalf of you, the membership.
You as a member, play a large part in promoting benefits for you and others. This is accomplished when EANGUS issues an “Answer the Call” which is a big push to contact our Congressman and Senators in support of a certain piece of legislation which is coming up for a vote. Your voice is powerful, and in numbers, we can make a difference.
The purpose of the Association is to operate a nonprofit organization to pursue the following objectives:
1. To perpetuate the Louisiana National Guard.
2. To encourage friendly social relationship among all military personnel and particularly the members of the Association.
3. To promote State and Federal legislation that shall aid the National Guard of Louisiana and the National Guard of the United States.
4. To endeavor, through professionalism and leadership, to improve the position and status of the members of the guard in relationship with the
civilian and military community.
