On 19 July 1968 at the graduation of Class 68B with the approval of General IG Brown the Director of the Air National Guard, the ANG Non Commissioned Officer Academy Graduate Association was formed. Chapter One was formed at that time. Consequently Chapter 2 in Puerto Rico was formed next and so on. Currently our Association has 106 chapters. The Association grew considerably in the early years primarily because it gave the graduates an opportunity to stay connected after their great experience at the NCO Academy. Over the years several scholarship programs were developed to encourage members dependents to continue on with their education. In 2007 our Association achieved non profit IRS status and got Incorporated in the state of Nebraska. We continue to look for ways to develop our association to assist unit members, their dependents, and local communities with educational goals.
