Warrant Officers are subject matter experts in their fields and are trusted advisors to commanders. They also help develop junior officers and noncommissioned officers.

Today, CW5 Patrick Muenks, our State Command Chief Warrant Officer, led a professional development discussion with members of the state’s warrant officer cohort.

If becoming a Warrant Officer interests you, take a look at career opportunities on our MoGuard.com site: http://www.moguard.com/warrant-officer-careers/

Planning is underway for a St. Louis Cardinals and a Kansas City Royals baseball game to honor our deployed Soldiers later in the season.

We're proud of a unique partnership we have with FOX Sports Midwest & FOX Sports Kansas City.

Each year, FOX Sports coordinates a "This One's For You" event at the ballparks for the families of our deployed National Guard Soldiers and Airmen.

During this year’s baseball season, elements of The National Guard’s 35th Combat Aviation Brigade and the 35th Engineer Brigade are scheduled to be deployed overseas.

Last week, the 35th CAB's Public Affairs and Family Readiness Group teams were at Kauffman Stadium, in Kansas City, to discuss logistical details for their game.

The Missouri Army National Guard Environmental Office put on it’s first annual pheasant hunt on 8 March 2018 at the Missouri Army National Guard’s (MOARNG) South 61 Training Site in Macon, Missouri. Nine disabled veteran’s participated in the event. MOARNG partnered with Missouri Disabled Veterans Outdoors (MODVO), Quail Forever, Lincoln University Agriculture Club, and the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) to make this event possible for the veterans. The event consisted of a skeet shoot, pheasant hunt, fish fry, and some prizes.

Shane Kampeter of the MOARNG stated that, “The first annual pheasant hunt went great, and we are looking forward to future hunts. The hunts are great experiences however the company and comradery seems to be the best part of the events. These hunts provide our veterans with an opportunity to talk and share their stories with each other, as well as younger generations, and gives MOARNG and partners the ability to give back to those whom gave so much.”

The rest of this story will be posted on MoGuard.com. Watch out for it.

We join our fellow Americans in mourning the passing — and celebrating the life — of former First Lady Barbara Bush. Our thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones at this time.

Mrs. Bush devoted her life to her family and others. She was the wife to one commander-in-chief and the mother to another, and leaves a significant public service legacy of uplifing Americans through family literacy.

Preparing for the next step in your military career doesn't stop when you're deployed. Solders deployed with the 35th Engineer Brigade just completed the Army Basic Leader Course (BLC) while overseas. Their success and efforts were noticed and recognized by their leadership.
