Founders

In 1954, a group of 43 Naval Reserve Officers founded the Naval Reserve Association (NRA). Their vision to create an organization that would be the voice of the Sailor has become the Association of the United States Navy (AUSN). We are eternally grateful to these individuals for their vision and determination.
