Benefits of membership
MCPO Allen congratulates MCPO Johnson

Membership is valuable

One of the best things about being in NERA is the meeting the people and having lasting friendships. I have met all the Force Master Chiefs and the Admirals since 1982. When I had any questions or needed help with my unit, I knew who to call to get an answer."

ACCM Delores Rucker (ret), Mid-Carolina Member
