WHO IS THE FLEET RESERVE ASSOCIATION?
The FRA is comprised of sea service enlisted personnel who have served or now serving in the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard (active duty, 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.
PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE FLEET RESERVE ASSOCIATION
With reverence for God and Country and being ever mindful of the glorious traditions of the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and U.S. Coast Guard our duty to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, our responsibility to aid in maintaining adequate defense for our beloved country; our desire to assist those who have served and are now serving; our devotion to our shipmates , in good fortune or distress; our reverence for the memory of our departed Shipmates; we associate ourselves together and declare this to be the Preamble to the Constitution of the Fleet Reserve Association
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.
