The U.S. Army Chaplain Corps Regimental Association, Inc. (USACCRA)
USACCRA exists to provide its members with fraternal, charitable, social, and educational activities and ministry opportunities.
USACCRA is a non-profit Veterans Organization for past and present members of the Army Chaplain Corps, their family members, and friends of the Chaplaincy. It a Non-Government Organization and is not associated with, nor does it represent, the Department of the Army or the Office of the Chief of Chaplains.
In 2006 the original Chaplain Corps Regimental Association (CCRA) which was led by the Office of the Chief of Chaplains was dissolved. To fill the vacuum, USACCRA was founded in 2009 by retirees and serving chaplains who saw a growing need to bring into one fold all of those who loved the chaplaincy and who desired to have an on-going organization to accomplish the following:
To be the National Association for all Serving, retired, or former, Army Chaplains and Chaplain Assistants of each Component, and their Family members.
