ABOUT The United States Army
Warrant Officers Association (USAWOA)
Founded in 1972, the USAWOA was incorporated as a not-for-profit association in Virginia on 7 November 1974, and in 1985 became a charter member of The Military Coalition (TMC). On June 23, 2021 the IRS notified the association that it was recognized under Section 501(c)(19), as a non-profit Veterans Service Organization (VSO), effective February 24, 2021. The founders of the USAWOA saw the Warrant Officer Corps of the early 1970s as a disjointed group of technical experts with little or no standardization in the area of professional development and sought to change this. The USAWOA’s philosophy has always been that recognition gained is directly proportional to value added. Every one of its members can be proud that its brief history – of little more than 40 years – has decisively impacted a remarkable four-decade evolution of Army Warrant Officers into the indispensible cohort of professional, technical, commissioned Leaders that they are today. To this day, the USAWOA remains the only military service organization thoroughly devoted to the welfare of Army Warrant Officers –serving, former, and retired – and their families.
WHAT WE DO
Recognizing the enormity of the challenges our cohort faces, the Doughboy Silver Chapter is dedicated to making a lasting impact. While our efforts are driven by our organization’s focus, we spread a wide net by investing in a variety of programs.
