The Association of the United States Navy (AUSN), located in the heart of historic Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, is the leading voice for America’s Sailors and the premier advocate for a strong Navy. Founded in 1954, and 22,000-members strong, AUSN has long enjoyed its distinguished reputation with the Navy and Congress as an honest broker in the discussion of Navy requirements and programs. As the only organization dedicated to advocating for Navy equipment and benefits for all members of the Navy—active and reserve; officer, enlisted, and civilian; serving, veteran, and retired; and their families—AUSN informs and educates members of Congress and their staffs on issues of importance to the Navy.
AUSN provides Sailors a comprehensive range of services to support the work of our Nation’s servicemen and women, including record reviews and audits, in-zone notification for promotion, Board of Correction of Naval Records case preparation, and Survivor Benefit Plan and Retired Pay estimates. In addition to these services, our experienced Headquarters Membership staff is available to assist with member questions.
AUSN also actively engages with its membership and industry and Navy leadership through its bi-monthly magazine,Navy, its weekly e-newsletter and legislative updates, and through social media outlets, including Facebook, Twitter, and blogs. AUSN empowers its members with timely information, and provides accurate interpretations of the issues facing our veterans and servicemen and women today and educates them on how they can respond and participate.
