The Fleet Reserve Association is the leading voice of the enlisted Sea
Service personnel on Capitol Hill and has been since 1924. A
Congressionally chartered, non-profit organization that represents the interests of the Sea Service community before the U.S. Congress, the Association's membership is comprised of current and former enlisted members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. FRA was chartered as the Fleet Reserve Association in 1924 and, after more that 80 years, FRA remains dedicated to its primary mission of serving the interests of current and former enlisted Navy, Maine Corps and Coast Guard personnel.
Norfolk Branch 5 is one of the original branches of the FRA, in continuous operation since November 1924. For more than 80 years, the members of Branch 5 have been supporting those issues confronting our members and supporting patriotic activities in our community.

On Saturday 25 October, Branch 5 will help with the
maintenance of the statuary at the MacArthur Memorial.
Anyone wanting to help should be at the memorial at

we do this every year and take a lot of pride in our work.
