Associate Members, Veterans:

Veteran Members must be sponsored by a “corporate” member. See any member of the Board of Governors for additional details.

Corporate Members are FRA Branch 24 members that are active duty, retired or active reserve members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard and have had enlisted time. They are also referred to as the corporate body and do not pay annual dues to the FRC.
Note – Veterans, which is a new category of Branch Member, have use of the FRC for Branch/Unit events, but must join the FRC as Associate Members as described above to use it as a social club.
