Magazine: Budget, McCain, New NGAUS Boss

April 2017

President Donald Trump’s first budget request would fund more troops, ships and airplanes. Or maybe not. Congress is faced with its annual budget muddle as it considers extending a continuing resolution for fiscal 2017 while also pondering the fiscal 2018 budget. NATIONAL GUARD makes sense of it all in the April edition.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, has good things to say about the National Guard. He also has praise for the president’s national security team. It’s in the current issue of the award-winning NGAUS magazine.

Retired Brig. Gen. Roy Robinson has taken the helm at the National Guard Memorial, the NGAUS headquarters in Washington, D.C. The combat veteran from Mississippi has promised to emphasize membership during his tenure. The NGAUS president talks about that and more in this month’s issue of the association publication.
