To the Editor:

The Fleet Reserve Association was founded in 1924. It is made up of former enlisted members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, and is a congressionally chartered nonprofit organization that represents the interests of the sea service community before the U.S. Congress.

We have an active branch of the association here, and would like to invite any former enlisted personnel to join us. Pine Tree Branch 156 meets monthly at Post 202 in Topsham. We welcome new shipmates. For information, log onto, contact me or come to a meeting.
