NGAUS Conference Highlights Included
Efficiency and seamless integration are the name of the game as the Air Force works to define the roles of each component
in the Total Force. That's according to Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, the chief of staff of the Air Force.
Maj. Gen. Deborah Ashenhurst, the adjutant general of Ohio since January 2011,
was elected chair of the NGAUS board of directors at the 136th General Conference and Exhibition ending today in Chicago.
A co-chairman of the Senate National Guard Caucus says the country may be overlooking the severity of
the current threats because it is tired of war after 13 years and asked NGAUS to help him convince citizens and lawmakers
that now is not the time to cut the military. "I need you more than I ever have in my political life," said Sen. Lindsey Graham,
R-S.C., a keynote speaker.
