OUR MISSION AND HISTORY:
FRA Branch 29 has provided 86 years of Loyalty, Protection and Service. FRA 29 was formed on July 18, 1930 and moved to its current location on Veterans Day, November 11, 1968.
Since 1924, the Fleet Reserve Association (FRA) has served as the voice of Sea Services enlisted personnel on Capitol Hill. FRA was the first enlisted military association to testify before a U.S. Congressional Committee. Today, FRA is recognized by the Secretary of the Navy to speak before the U.S. Congress on their behalf. In addition, the 1997 Defense Authorization Act granted a Federal Charter to the FRA.
FRA represents the interests of Enlisted and Former Enlisted Active Duty, Reserve, Retired and Veterans Honorably Discharged from the US Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and their families.
