A list of general contacts can be found here, also accessible in the header menu under “home” or in the footer menu.

Please note: There is no single reference list to all contacts within the Iowa National Guard. The organization is functionally expansive, with many personnel as well as offices, and extends across the state of Iowa.

If you reach out to an office unassociated with the office that you intended to reach, an attempt will certainly be made to help you reach the correct contact.

However, the ability of employees to search for or provide contacts is limited to the level of detail provided, office resources and duties, and personal experience such as professional relationships between offices. 

Specific etiquette applies to proper disposal of a U.S. flag, and resources about what to do are provided here
