Shipmate 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).
Shipmate Carlin's concept became the Fleet Reserve Association's primary mission to protect the pay, benefits, and compensation of Sea Service enlisted personnel (active duty, reservist, veterans, and retired) members 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.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO JOIN THE FRA?
Membership in the Fleet Reserve Association is open to all enlisted personnel (active duty, reservist, veterans, and retired) members of the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.
