The Reserve Officers Association (ROA) is a membership association dedicated to providing a voice for Reserve Component Service Members and Non-Commissioned Officers (E-4 through E-9) of all the uniformed services. Chartered by Congress and founded in 1922, ROA advises and educates Congress, the President, and the American people on national security, with unique expertise on issues that affect the 1.2 million men and women now serving in America’s Reserve Components.
ROA membership is open to all non-commissioned and commissioned officers, warrant officers, and their spouses, from the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Navy, and Marine Corps, U.S. Public Health Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
ROA has approximately 50,000 members.
ROA's headquarters are the Minuteman Memorial Building, located at One Constitution Ave. NE in Washington, DC. Situated across First Street from the Capitol Building, across Constitution Avenue from the Dirksen Senate Office Building, and two doors down from the Supreme Court, ROA proudly occupies one of the only privately owned buildings on Capitol Hill.

ROA is America's only military association focused exclusively on all of the nation's Reserve Components. That gives its voice special clout. ROA's focus is intended to reflect the current environment in which our members serve. Legislative goals are member-driven and acted on by the staff.
