Branch 97 is happy to have you visit and we look forward to getting to know our shipmates. Our first goal is getting back to the basics. It is important to remember why the Fleet Reserve Association was established.

“FRA is first and foremost a community of the Sea Services; U.S. Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard personnel. Your enlisted service in any of these branches—past or present, for a short time or for the long haul—is your passport to membership in an association that works hard for you and your family on Capitol Hill and in your local community.

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

Visit FRA.org to discover more information about the Association and how you can get involved.

Happy March Shipmates,

Branch 97 will be hosting elections for President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Nominations are accepted in March and April. Please attend either General Assembly to ensure your nomination is heard. Voting will take place in May, so it is very important to have the highest participation possible! Please plan ahead to attend. Installation of newly elected officers will be in June at the General Assembly.


We are still looking for committee chairs and chairmembers. If you’re interested in committees please check out the tab located at the top of the page to see which are vacant and consider getting involved!


I am looking forward to seeing you all and getting to know you. Thank you for your service!

In Loyalty, Protection, & Service,
Jackie Towell
