50th Anniversary Gala

Celebrating 50 Years of Service

In 1969, a small group of military spouses gathered around a kitchen table determined to make sure their widowed friends were properly taken care of. Seven years after that fateful meeting, our Association formed and our mission took shape.

Please join us as we celebrate the last five decades of service to America’s military families and reflect on an incredible history of impactful moments that will inspire and propel our mission into the next 50 years.

Our mission to strengthen and support each member of the military family continues to be the driving force behind the work we do and the motto we live: together we’re stronger.
