Announcement for Annual State Hill Day

EANGKS and NGAKS will be hosting their annual State Hill Day on February 19, 2018 at the Kansas State Capitol.  This year there is a large growing momentum behind fully funding State Tuition Assistance (STA) for both Air and Army Kansas National Guard service members.  While state law calls for a 100% of funding for tuition and fees for qualified KSNG services members, historical increases to tuition and institutional fees has decreased the full funding to approximately only 51% for participants.  This year there are actions to add STA into the state budget at the fully funded rate. 

We need your help on February 19 to encourage our elected official to support this effort.  The recruitment, retention and quality of life of our Guard members will significantly enhanced if this is achieved.      

Come join us for this momentous opportunity–make a difference for our current and future Kansas National Guard members! 

Please register at https://eangks.org/eangksngaks-state-legislative-hill-day/

A confirmed agenda for the day will be available closer to Hill Day.  Until then, please contact your NGAKS Legislative Chairperson, Jody Cope, at jodymccready@hotmail.com or myself at sfpeyton@gmail.com .

 Thank you for your time

2018 Museum Membership Campaign

The Museum of the Kansas National Guard’s mission is to preserve and present the militia heritage of the Kansas Army and Air National Guard. Without paid staff, Museum volunteers have tried to do this at minimal cost.

Donations, memberships, and brick sales is needed to meet operational costs and to save for future expenses.

The museum board is asking you to:

  • Become a 2018 Annual Member or a 2018 Major Donor ($100 & up).
  • Become a Perpetual Sustaining Member — $1200 up front or $120 a year for 10 years. You receive a brass plate in the Museum Lobby and annual listings in Museum Newsletters.
  • Purchase an engraved brick for the Museum or for the 35th Division Wall — or a memorial brick for a friend or family member. Interior bricks are $200 and patio bricks are $50.00.
  • Make a donation for operational expenses.
  • Designate the Museum as a beneficiary for memorials, wills, trusts, or IRA distributions.

All who pay Annual Member dues, make Major Donor donations of $100 or more for 2018, buy bricks, or who make Perpetual Sustaining Member payments will receive a 2018 Museum Coin, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the 1968 mobilizations for the Vietnam War.
