As Reserve duty has changed so has ROA. Founded in 1922 by General Blackjack Pershing to support a U.S. military policy that will provide adequate national security, today's ROA is more dynamic than ever. We're providing the tools, resources, support and education Reservists and their families need to succeed in and out of uniform. We're an organization on the move; serving more Reservists than ever. ROA is proud to welcome NCOs from all branches of service. Because service isn't about your rank, it's about what you do.
Over the past 10 years our nation's Reserve Components have evolved into one of the most unique, adaptable and operational forces in the world. At ROA, our mission is simple: support these brave men and women and their mission through a commitment to a strong Reserve force and specialized attention to individual Reservists; a mantra we call Reserve Strength.
