About Us

Since April 22, 1959, the Connecticut Chapter has been working in the interests of the Association of the United States Army's mission to support the total Army: Active, National Guard, Army Reserve, Retirees, Veterans, Department of the Army Civilian Employees and soldiers families. The Chapter has supported National Guard and Army Reserve soldiers through its Soldier Support Programs and their families through the Guard and Reserve Family Support Programs. It also recognizes the National Guard Soldier and NCO of the Year recipients and Honor Graduates of the NCO School's BNCO and ANCO Programs and OCS Honor Graduates.

The chapter is very active with the University of Connecticut Army ROTC program. It has presented awards at the annual UCONN ROTC Awards Luncheon over the past several years and has supported runners from the Nathan Hale Battalion to participate in the Army Ten-Miler race at the AUSA's Annual Meeting for the past five years. The Nathan Hale Battalion is also a sub-chapter of the Connecticut Chapter. In addition the chapter supports the JROTC programs at five High Schools throughout Connecticut. The schools are located in Bloomfield, New Britain, Waterbury, New Haven and Stamford.

During the 2007 Legislative Session of the Connecticut State Legislature, a bill was passed naming a bridge on I-84 as the Association of the United States Army Memorial Bridge. The bridge is located in the Danbury area, on the eastbound side of I-84, just after you cross the state line from New York. Pictured below is the Chapter President CSM(Ret) Bob Moeller with AUSA President GEN(Ret) Gordon Sullivan holding a smaller version of the actual sign.
