reserve, retired) and commissioned officers with at least one day of
enlisted sea service. The Fleet Reserve Association was Federally
Chartered in 1924 as a professional non-profit organization that is
devoted to the interests of Enlisted and retired members of the United
States Sea Services.

MISSION OF THE FLEET RESERVE ASSOCIATION
S/M George Carlin, then a Chief Yeoman, Founded the Fleet Reserve Association in 1924. He conceived the concept of Enlisted personnel banding together for mutual Loyalty, Protection, and Service. He rightfully is the Founding Father of the Fleet Reserve Association (FRA).
S/M Carlin's concept became the FRA's primary mission to protect the pay, benefits, and compensation of Sea Service enlisted personnel (active duty, reserve, and retired) and their families through direct representation in the U.S. Congress. The FRA also assists with individual career problems by maintaining a close liaison with Department of Defense and Veteran's Affairs and other government agencies. We support military policy that provides for an adequate national defense, guarantees the realness of our forces, and safeguards the personnel interests of the sea service community.
