TREA (The Enlisted Association) was founded in Colorado Springs in February 1963 to protect the rights of enlisted retirees. It soon became a national organization and was chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1992. Nationally, TREA now has over 90,000 members and its Auxiliary has over 13,000. Chapter 1 has over 1,000 members and its Auxiliary has approximately 300 members.
Chapter 1 and its Auxiliary are committed to assisting the local community through donations of thousands of dollars annually to local charities which provided assistance to handicapped senior citizens, disadvantaged children, disabled or hospitalized veterans, and man other worthy causes. Many of our members donate their own time to community projects and we participate in many civic events such as parades, etc.
You and your Family can take advantage of a wide variety of services and activities offered by Chapter 1. A TREA membership will permit you and your family to become involved in the only organization dedicated exclusively to the preservation of benefits of enlisted retirees.
