April Meeting Photos

On 11 April 2019, we held our monthly meeting at the Dobson’s Restaurant at the Dobson Ranch Golf Course in Mesa, Arizona.  Our guest speaker was Major General Michael McGuire.  MG McGuire is The Adjutant General, Army and Air Force National Guard for the State of Arizona; and, concurrently serves as the Director of the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs.  He gave a presentation to our attending members which covered the current composition and status of the Arizona Guard, including commitments, domestic and overseas, of Guard resources supporting active US military forces.  Additionally, he provided a more clear description of immigration activities and affairs that impact Arizona as a boarder state.  It became obvious during his presentation that a true crisis exists at the Arizona/Mexico boarder, and a solid commitment of support and assistance from the Federal Government is sorely needed.  Click for Major Gen McGuire's Biography.
