It is with heavy heart that I must announce the passing of Shipmate Walter Hardin. He was a lifetime member and in good standing with Branch 310. He is a plank owner in Branch 310. We will be honoring Shipmate Walt at our next meeting in February.
No organization lobbies more effectively on behalf of active duty, Reserve and veteran Sea Services personnel than FRA. The Association understands the needs of enlisted personnel and has served as their voice on Capitol Hill for more than 80 years.
FRA was the first organization to exclusively represent the interests of enlisted personnel before Congress and remains committed to bringing their perspective to lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
As a leading organization in The Military Coalition, FRA works closely with 35 other military and veterans’ organizations on important personnel issues. In addition to direct representation in Congress, the Association sponsors legislative seminars across the country to better inform Sea Services personnel, Reservists, retirees and veterans about governmental actions that affect them and what they can do to protect their interests.
FRA is also your homeport for solving career problems and is your direct link to the Departments of Defense (DoD), Homeland Security (DHS) and Veterans’ Affairs (VA) and other government agencies having oversight of your benefit programs and your current and future security.
- The Association stands ready to serve you and your family to include caring support and assistance in times of trouble or distress.
Those interested in supporting the Association or receiving additional information should contact FRA’s National Headquarters by calling 1-800-FRA-1924, visiting us at www.fra.org or sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Our meetings are held every first Thursday of every month at 1830 for those who would like join us and add your voice to our mission of supporting the sea services.
