Veteran’s Advocacy and Support:
- American Legion – Chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to service members and veterans.
- Disabled American Veterans – Dedicated to building better lives for America’s disabled veterans and their families. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

FRA’s guiding principles are Loyalty, Protection and Service to our shipmates.
