The Annual AUSA Conference and Exposition sponsored by the Braxton Bragg Chapter of the Association of the United States Army is a forum for professional interchange between industry and the military. Held this past month, the expo also generates support for soldier and military family programs at Fort Bragg which are critical to sustaining the health and welfare of the soldiers who defend our freedom and their families.
This year’s keynote speaker, CSM, XVIII Airborne Corps, Isaia T. Vimoto, challenged attendees to “spread the word” about the Association of the United States Army (AUSA). He shared his passion for the work that AUSA does to support our troops and challenged everyone to support our military by becoming a member in the AUSA.
So what does the AUSA do? Local chapters provide resources and support to soldiers and families on Army bases throughout the United States. AUSA also represents our soldiers in Washington by lobbying for:
- Military Pay, Healthcare, and Retirement benefits
- Suicide Awareness and Prevention for the Military
- Funding for Critical Projects like MRAP vehicles and Anti-IED Equipment
- Funding Military Family and Housing Programs
- Emphasizing Readiness to Sustain and Modernize our Army Forces
Please consider joining Accu-Fab by becoming a member of AUSA! Our troops deserve your support, and this is an easy way for you to show your appreciation for their tireless efforts in defense of our freedom. We have joined CSM Vimoto in expressing our passion to support our soldiers by participating in the local AUSA Fort Bragg chapter programs.
