WASHINGTON – Last week, U.S. Senators Roy Blunt (Mo.) and Gary Peters (Mich.) introduced a resolution to honor the 100th anniversary of the Reserve Officers Association, now known as the Reserve Organization of America.

“I commend the Reserve Organization of America for all the work they do to support the men and women who have done so much to keep our country safe, strong, and free,” said Senator Blunt. “I’m proud to join Senator Peters to introduce this resolution honoring the first 100 years of ROA, and I look forward to the great work they will continue to do over the next 100 years.”

“As a former Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I'm proud to work with Senator Blunt on this bipartisan commemoration of the Reserve Organization of America's 100th anniversary” said Senator Peters. “For the last century, ROA has been a key ally in support of our Reserves and National Guard. Their strong advocacy for national security, readiness, and the wellbeing of our reserve component servicemembers, veterans and military families has helped strengthen our military and we look forward to their continued work ahead.”

About ROA:

Since 1922, The Reserve Officers Association of the United States, now known as the Reserve Organization of America to reflect its all-ranks membership, has championed the cause of the Reserve Components at home and in war. The evolution of that mission has helped protect the rights and benefits of individual members of the Reserve force and their families, while preserving a strong and capable Reserve force as a critical component to our national security.  ROA continues to serve the Reserve and National Guard in an era where the need is greater than ever before.

For 100 years, ROA has been the only organization solely dedicated to supporting the Reserve Components and their critical role in national defense.  ROA is America’s only exclusive advocate for the Reserve and National Guard – all ranks, all services. With a sole focus on support of the Reserve and Guard, ROA promotes the interests of Reserve Component members, their families, and veterans of Reserve service; and conducts a legislative campaign that ensures the readiness of our Reserve force. Together, ROA’s members sound off in one voice for one mission.
