The NGAC Scholarship program is intended to provide financial assistance on a merit-based, competitive basis to members of NGAC and their qualified dependents to assist in meeting the costs of higher education and vocational-technical training.

Veterans Legal Advocacy

GGU Law’s Veterans Legal Advocacy Center seeks to open the profession to more of our distinguished veterans and to collaborate with outside agencies to offer programs that serve our students and support the growing legal needs of the broader veteran community.


The Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States (EANGUS) is organized in the fifty-five states, territories, and National Capitol area. Its objective is to further the interests of enlisted personnel of the Army and the Air National Guard through the legislative process and to administer the support services necessary to carry out that objective.

Recognition & Awards

The annual “Best Warrior” competition is part of the United States Army’s Best Warrior program. Soldiers compete in two categories: the “Soldier of the Year” for E-4 and below and “Non-commissioned Officer of the Year” for E-5 and up. Winners from California compete in the National Guard regional competition in hopes of representing the entire U.S. National Guard in competition against winner from across the Army.

Soldier’s Bowl

The Soldier Bowl, Camp Roberts’ huge outdoor amphitheater, was officially completed on August 30, 1941 according to building records, at a cost of $6,730.00.  It included a Spanish Mission-style façade backdrop with adjoining entrance wings, dressing rooms and toilets.  An historic iron mission bell from the Mission San Miguel de Archangel in San Miguel was given to Camp Roberts and installed in the bell tower—the highest point of the entire structure.

OCS Support

The idea of an "Officer Candidate School" (OCS) being established at Camp San Luis Obispo in the summer of 1950 was merely that, an idea. However, because of the need for junior officers in the California Army National Guard, Major General Curtis D. O’Sullivan,  conceived a program to establish such an academy within the State of California, outside the exiting Army Program located at Fort Benning, Georgia. The newly created State OCS program graduated its first class in 1951.

Work For Warriors

Work for Warriors (WFW) is a State and Federally funded Free Direct Placement Program within California. The intent of the employment initiative branded “Work for Warriors” is aimed at reducing the unemployment rate among California Service Members (SMs) in the Guard and Reserve by directly placing them into gainful fulltime employment.

Family Support

The NGAC Family Program is here to support the Airman, and Soldier, of the California National Guard. We are here to support units, families, veterans, and friends. With the ever-changing face and duties of the National Guard, it is imperative to look to the future of Family Programs while remaining flexible in the present.
