The eGuardian is an easy-to-read, monthly digest of news and announcements for members of the 176th Wing. It is all the information you want, compiled in one place and conveniently delivered to your home or work e-mail account.
Subscribing to the eGuardian is purely voluntary. Subscribers receive one issue a month a few days before a drill.
If you choose to provide your personal email, we only use that information to respond to your request to subscribe to the eGuardian. We never create individual profiles or give it to any private organizations. The Freedom of Information and Privacy Act Office never collects information for commercial marketing. While you must provide an e-mail address for a response, we recommend that you NOT include any other personal information, especially Social Security numbers. The Social Security Administration offers additional guidance on sharing your Social Security number.
You can safely use your primary e-mail address to subscribe. We will never give it out to anyone else, for any reason, period. No matter how nicely they ask.
You may also easily unsubscribe from the e-Guardian at any time.
You may receive the digest at your home or work e-mail address. However, you must activate the subscription using your military e-mail address. This is so we can ensure only wing members are subscribing.
Also, please subscribe using only one e-mail address. (If you want it delivered to your work AND home, just set up a rule or filter in one e-mail account that automatically makes a copy and forwards it to your other account. Pretty much any modern e-mail program should be able to do this; check the program's "help" for instructions.)
Subscribing is easy. If you're using a military computer, just click this Outlook email generator
You can also subscribe if you're logged into your military e-mail account using your home computer with remote access. Just send the following e-mail message:
SUBJECT: SUBSCRIBE TO EGUARDIAN
BODY: I'd like to subscribe to the 176th Wing eGuardian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may unsubscribe at any time. Just send an e-mail to email@example.com with the phrase "unsubscribe from eGuardian" (without quotes) as the subject line, and the e-mail address you wish to unsubscribe within the body message. (Note: To unsubscribe, you do not need to use a military e-mail address.)
