History and Benefits of Membership

The Navy Mustang Association was originally started in 1989 by Mustangs in the Washington D.C. area interested in having a social and professional organization for limited duty and warrant officers. Membership is open to present and former officers of the Navy who after having enlisted as a recruit in the Navy and who have received as a minimum the Good Conduct Medal and in recognition of their superior leadership and professional skills have been selected, through a sea service in-service procurement program, for and risen from the enlisted to the officer ranks. If you are interested in joining the Navy Mustang Association but do not meet all criteria for membership, please submit your application with a written request for exemption. The NMA Executive Committee will review your application and make a case-by-case decision on your eligibility for membership in the Association.

By 1994 Mustangs all over the world were joining the Washington Organization. The Board of Directors, believing the time had come to provide better support and direction outside the local area, made provisions for a national Organization governed by a Board of Directors and for the establishment of chapters.

National Organization benefits include:

  • Centralized leadership and executive guidance

  • A national Mustang directory
  • Centralized administrative and membership coordination
