ROA Education Experience
Duty in the Reserve and Guard is complicated and most people simply don’t get it. The truth is, Reservists are everywhere. They’re teachers and firefighters, community leaders and entrepreneurs. Reservists represent the most direct connection between the public and our military yet most of us don’t know what they do or how they do it.
That's why ROA’s Defense Education Forum (DEF) is an essential tool for today’s serving Reservists. As a respected center of excellence and a leader in joint professional development, DEF provides a one of a kind resource for Reservists in and out of uniform. Holding down a civilian job while navigating a military career is no easy task. Over the last decade, thousands of young Reservists have received the knowledge and resources they need to succeed through their attendance at one of many professional development seminars from ROA’s Defense Education Forum. Your support of ROA’s Defense Education Forum helps us continue to provide the latest tools and the most comprehensive resources to these Citizen Warriors so they can focus on success on and off the battlefield.
