What ROA is Doing for You!


ROA is the nation’s leading advocate for members of the Reserve Components, their families, and veterans of the Reserve force. Reserve service members face the unique burdens of balancing civilian and military commitments. Too often, the Reserve force is treated as an afterthought in law and policy, in modernization, training, use, and funding, and in benefits.

America’s citizen-warriors deserve a dedicated voice in creating government policy. ROA provides that voice.


ROA membership offers access to tools and resources to balance your military and civilian lives. From professional development to travel, ROA members can be sure to profit from everything ROA offers!
