Who We Are
Organized in 1930, the
Ladies Auxiliary of the Fleet Reserve
Association (LA FRA) is chartered to aid,
assist and promote all matters pertaining to
welfare, social, and patriotic works of the
Association , its members and their
families. There are LA FRA Units located
throughout the United States and the
Philippines. There is also a
Membership-at-Large (MAL) roll administered
by the LA FRA National Offices, for those
who do not have access to, or do not desire
to join a Unit. The LA FRA is proud of the
heritage and traditions of this great nation
and we recognize the sacrifices, past and
present, needed to keep us strong and free.
What Do We Do?
LA FRA plays an active role in
the local community by promoting youth
activities, Americanism, and charitable
causes. At the national level, LA FRA funds
four annual scholarships and was a major
contributor to the building of our nation's
Navy Memorial, located in Washington, D.C.
LA FRA Units
sponsor and assist local communities with
their memorial ceremonies and patriotic
events. They also participate in social
events such as dances, luncheons, picnics
and fund-raising activities. Annual regional
and national conventions, caucuses,
workshops, convention tours, shows and
dinner/dances round out many exciting
activities available to LA FRA members.

least sixteen (16) years of age.
