President's Message


For an incredible 63 years, the National Guard Bureau Spouses' Club has enabled hundreds of National Guard families to make new friends, support each other in the DMV region, and to provide scholarships to family members of our National Guard Bureau soldiers. I am so excited to meet new friends and get to know our existing members even better this year! 

My objectives for the 2018-2019 year are to increase membership and increase the amount of scholarships
we provide. I hope you will consider joining National Guard Bureau Spouses' Club and participating in our exciting schedule of activities. NGBSC events help to bring us closer together as well as to see a little of our surrounding area. 

Each year our organization participates in multiple fundraising opportunities in order to provide scholarships to National Guard Bureau dependents and NGB civilian families. Last year we were able to provide three college bound students $1,000 scholarships each. 

I call upon each of you to volunteer just a few hours this year to our fundraising efforts. NGBSC sells ornaments each year at Temple Hall (formerly Arlington Hall) around Christmas, participates in Wreaths Across America, and sells flowers to our spouses at the building on Valentine's Day. Please sign up to work 1-2 shifts! 

Due to privacy changes within the National Guard, we are no longer given information about new families coming to the area. We rely entirely on word of mouth to reach new people!

Please contact me if you have any questions or ideas! You can reach me at Please visit and like our Facebook page as well to receive updated information about our events. Welcome to the NGB and to the Washington DC area! 

In service to the spouses of the National Guard Bureau,

Tarah Nypaver

President NGBSC
