Marne Chapter-3rd Infantry Division & Hunter Army Airfield we are one of the many worldwide chapters of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA).
AUSA is a professional, non-profit association representing America’s Army on Capitol Hill and in the local communities. AUSA serves as an advocate and voice for the TOTAL Army – Active Component, National Guard, Army Reserve, Family Members, Department of the Army Civilians, and the Retiree Community. This chapter is part of a grass roots effort that supports AUSA initiatives by advocating for a strong Army and supporting our Soldiers, their families, veterans, and the many members of our community who support the Army.
The Marne Chapter serves as a liaison between the AUSA and local community to identify and address issues important to its membership as well as to help educate the public about the need for a strong Army and national defense. Our main goal, however, is to support our local communities to the best of our ability.
Message from the President
What an honor to be asked to serve as President of The Marne Chapter a Chapter Celebrating its 50th Birthday this year!
My ties to The Army go back 3 decades. My husband, Franklyn L. Schreihofer retired some 10 years ago from active duty with over 22 years in service, we had 2 children during and numerous duty stations. Through my husband’s service I experienced first-hand many of the successes and challenges a military family face.
Serving the Marne Chapter has given me an incredible opportunity to give back to those soldiers and their families who serve our nation every day.
It is my pleasure to lead the Marne chapter comprised of corporate and individual members who strongly back our army families by being their voice within our community, state and nation. My personal belief Our Soldiers and Families deserve the best we can offer. My family’s designation as a military family has instilled in me a desire to be part of a greater purpose—to take a stand on behalf of our soldiers when they cannot speak for themselves.
The AUSA Marne chapter gives us all an opportunity to champion our soldiers and their families. Join me and help spread the word. We are a Membership based organization and costs are minimal. The return on your investment to the Ft. Stewart & Hunter Army Airfield communities are priceless.
