Information and Locations
The Navy Mustang Association (NMA) is the only professional and social organization instituted for Naval officers who served three or more years in the enlisted ranks. Our logo includes the words “Up from the Ranks” to describe the promotion achievements of our current membership, but also to light the path for future membership. Mustangs feel a profound responsibility for reaching into the enlisted ranks and supporting those worthy sailors seeking a commission. Mustangs also understand the importance of an ongoing support network and are committed to helping each other during and after military service.
NMA chapters are designed to provide professional support to chapter members by receiving and transmitting local and national information about laws, regulations, and attitudes affecting current and future Mustangs, active, reserve, retired and former officers. Chapters also exist to educate local Navy and public leadership on Mustangs and their personal and professional contributions. Chapters are social organizations because fellowship builds the strength of the organization and its members.
Chapter members provide the operating base for the National Organization and local organizations. It is through membership symposia, special activities and projects, sailor support programs and national and local chapter publicity that NMA gains and maintains the interest of its membership, obtains new members and has its greatest influence upon the Navy and public leadership.
If you are interested in creating a chapter in your local area, NMA will provide a disk and hard copy with sample forms, by-laws, and instructions to assist in organizing chapters. Call NMA headquarters at (703) 960-6805 or email us at UPFRMRNK@aol.com.
