Desk of the Chairman February 2024
The Non Commissioned Officers Association was founded in 1960 in San Antonio, Texas by a group of retired non-commissioned and petty officers seeking to create a patriotic, fraternal, and benevolent Association. Through the years of its existence, there have been a number of changes and improvements in the Association that should be of interest to prospective members. NCOA’s membership includes and is open to all Current, Separated, or Retired Enlisted personnel who have served honorably in an Active, Reserve, or National Guard capacity in the U.S. Armed Forces. The NCOA offers its members a wide range of benefits and services designed especially for enlisted service members and their families.
The Roguette Auxiliary falls under the International Auxiliary membership division and is compromised of spouses/former spouses, widows/widowers, and family members over the age of 18 who are related to enlisted service members, whether active duty, separated, veteran, Reserve of National Guard in grades E1 through E9. In addition to the Auxiliary membership counting towards the Associations total membership, Auxiliary members support the Non Commissioned Officers Association and its’ aims, goals and ideals in a multitude of ways.
