Voice for the Army — Support for the Soldier

who we are

Since 1950, the Association of the United States Army has worked to support all
aspects of national security while advancing the interests of America’s Army and
the men and women who serve.

AUSA is a private, non-profit educational organization that supports America’s Army – Active, National Guard, Reserve, Civilians, Retirees, Government Civilians, Wounded Warriors, Veterans, and family members. AUSA provides numerous Professional Development Opportunities at a variety of events both local and national.


AUSA speaks out for the men and women of the United States Army who proudly serve our country.

Local Community Involvement

AUSA has 120 chapters located worldwide. Made up entirely of volunteers, they provide recreational and educational opportunities to Soldiers and their families. AUSA and its’ chapters have contributed over $2,000,000 to awards, scholarships, and support of soldier and family programs. Their mission is to support our Soldiers and the civilians and families who work alongside of them in the local community.

Professional and Educational Benefits

  • AUSA supplied us with welcome home baskets. It was great for the single guys returning home.
