COL James F. Gamble

The National Guard Executive Director’s Association (NGEDA) lost a true American hero over the 2016 Memorial Day weekend.

COL (Ret) James F. Gamble was a founder of the National Guard Association of Alabama (NGAAL) and NGEDA. He served as NGEDA’s first president in 1966 and again a decade later in 1976. He testified before Congress in the early 1970s to secure payroll deductions for the National Guard Assotiations’ life insurance programs. Each January at the annual NGEDA conference, the COL James F. Gamble Award is presented in his honor to an outstanding NGEDA member.
