With our headquarters located in Alexandria, Virginia, the Association of the United States Navy (AUSN) came to be in March 2009. From 1954 until March 2009, AUSN was known as the Naval Reserve Association. The change was more than just in the name. AUSN brings with it more than 60 years of service to the United States. As AUSN, we serve the entire Navy community, adding to our current representation of Reserve members. We have a membership of approximately 15,000 and continue to grow each year. Benefits of an AUSN membership: •Legislation- AUSN gives you the tools and information to: take part in protecting your benefits, advocate and communicate with Congress regarding legislation through our Legislative Action Center, and respond to Action Alerts that define the issues. •Information/education- AUSN keeps members informed by providing: a quarterly magazine, email newsletters and special announcements, professional development seminars, and conferences. •Assistance- AUSN assists the professionals of the Naval Service by: informing you about current trends, supporting your vocational needs, providing career guidance, and helping your family with questions related to your service. •Community- AUSN has local chapters to make it possible for you to meet with other members in your area and receive information that is region specific. •Retirement- AUSN provides help and information for Survivor Benefit Plans (SBP), Tri-Care for life, current benefit structure, and pay estimates.

Bravo Zulu, Chief Rogers!

Bravo Zulu, Chief Rogers!

This was my beautiful wife this past January getting ready to go in to take her exam for Chief Petty Officer. She was in between chemo rounds, and fighting fatigue, chemo sickness and chemo brain. When she got home and I asked her how she did, she said “I prayed my way through the exam so it’s all in God’s hands.”

Today, the Navy publicly released the advancement results for Chief Petty Officer and she was selected! For those of you that don’t know, being selected for Chief is a huge milestone in her career. I am SO proud of her!

This year has been a tough one on her, but she never stopped fighting. She always relied on her faith. She never gave up. She is a true FIGHTER.

Congratulations, Chief Select. I’m proud of you and I love you! ♥️

09/28/2020

The U.S. Navy has commissioned the latest Arleigh Burke-class destroyer to join the fleet, the USS Delbert D. Black (DDG-119).

The ship was commissioned on Sept. 26 in a private event due to public health and safety concerns related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The ship is named after the first Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON), Delbert Black, who served from January 1967 until April 1971.

“This is the first ship to honor a senior enlisted leader in such a way for their contributions in this realm, and represents a significant milestone achievement that recognizes both the responsibility of the position to the Navy, as well the tremendous accountability to those enlisted Sailors we primarily provide advocacy for,” said MCPON Russell Smith, who is the 15th senior enlisted leader of the Navy, in a Navy statement. “The vision and effort it took to move the idea of a Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy into an effective reality cannot be overstated, and all of us have been the benefactors of his legend of service by advancing the work that he began.”

Rear Adm. Brad Cooper, Commander, Naval Surface Force Atlantic, said in the statement that the Black “joins the Fleet during a time when its cutting-edge capabilities are most needed.”

The ship is the 68th Arleigh Burke-class destroyer delivered to the Navy.

The third Friday of September is National POW/MIA Day, The Association of the United States Navy would like to take this time to honor and recognize our nation’s soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice while defending our country’s freedom. It is through their sacrifice that America has endured. We stand with the families of the 81,900 servicemembers who are still missing, and we will never forget them.

Whether in the fields and forests of France in 1918, the Indo-Pacific seas in 1942, the jungles of Vietnam in 1969, or the deserts and mountains of the Middle East in 2006, those who have been taken prisoner by enemy combatants displayed a courage and resilience which is incomparable. A courage and resiliency which is rooted in pride of service and country, a characteristic which cannot be taught only learned.

09/02/2020

On this day, 75 years ago, nine representatives of the allied powers – The United States represented by Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, and honorary AUSN member – met with nine representatives of the Empire of Japan on the USS Missouri to sign the Japanese Instrument of Surrender. The allied delegation as a whole was headed by General of the Army Douglas MacArthur

The Surrender was the result of an enduring Pacific Theatre campaign which began with the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 which resulted in the loss of 2,335 American lives and 1,143 injured soldiers. The resulted Pacific Campaign would result in some 426,000 American casualties, and while those lives are never forgotten, the American military persevered. This unwavering perseverance resulted in Emperor Hirohito’s radio announcement accepting the terms of the Potsdam Conference on August 15th, signifying Japan’s realization that continuing in the War was futile.

The European Theatre ended on May 8, 1945, and with Japan’s surrender and the destruction of the axis powers, the allies emerged from the gruesome conflict as the undisputable global superpowers. Following V-J Day, the United States was engulfed in widespread emotional celebrations, finally, the boys were coming home after four hard years.

AUSN is proud to salute the almost four million sailors, marines, and coast guardsmen who served in World War 2 and helped make the United States Navy the world’s preeminent Naval superpower. AUSN also shows unwavering gratitude to all 12 million American service members who selflessly fought against tyranny and oppression.

To all who served, our most heartfelt thank you.

The Board of Veterans Appeals has announced that they are lifting the stay on all Blue Water Navy cases. This does not mean there will be a quick decision but we will be moving towards a conclusion. At issue remains the exact location of the territorial sea. Hopefully that will be resolved in our meeting with Secretary Wilkie next week. Our position is that the territorial sea begins at the baseline ad runs for 12 nautical miles seaward. The VA General Counsel has indicated that they will take a narrower approach. We are prepared to litigate this position. If your ship was within 12 nm of the baseline and your claim is denied, contact Military-Veterans Advocacy immediately.

My McCain moment: several years ago, Sen McCain met with several then LD11(now LD28) members. He saw my Senior Chief anchor lapel pin and told me his times as a junior Navy officer and hoe he greatly benefited from the guidance of a Navy Senior Chief in his squadron and how that Senior Chiefs counsel may have kept him on a successful course as an officer.

Having been in law enforcement for 20years, I have a deep appreciation for law enforcement and have always supported our military. I am also a musician, and have written and produced a song to honor our veterans. I am donating 50% of all proceeds to veterans organizations to help wounded veterans and families of veterans. I would appreciate anything you could do to help pass my song along to help raise money for veterans and spread a positive message of unity for our great nation. Please see the YouTube video I co-produced below as well as a link to the iTunes store below. Donations will come from purchases from music downloads. Thank you again for everything you are doing for our veterans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkfY8kTv8tM&feature=share https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/lets-all-stand-for-this-one-single/1415528610 Sincerely, Corby Holcomb
Please support HR 299 , the Blue Water Navy Bill this week during the hearing . How can we justify sending millions to Vietnam for cleanup when these veterans need their Agent Orange Benefits restored. They were stripped from them in 2002. Money can be found to send to Vietnam . Where is the funding for HR 299? Vietnam, US begin Agent Orange cleanup at former wartime air base By Staff reporters January 24, 2018 | 10:38 am GMT+7 Bien Hoa Airport is the largest remaining dioxin hotspot in Vietnam. Vietnam and the U.S. have kickstarted the process of cleaning up the dioxin around Bien Hoa Airport, a heavily contaminated zone just outside Ho Chi Minh City. The process formally began on Tuesday with the signing of a Memorandum of Intent between the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Military Science Department under Vietnam's Ministry of Defense. USAID will be working with the Vietnamese ministry to first design a remediation program before implementing it over the next few years. Susie Belanger
