History of SENCLAND Chapter and List of Past Presidents

Written by Bob Jones, LTC, USA-Ret

SENCLAND CHAPTER HISTORY

SENCLAND chapter, TROA (The Retired Officers Association of America), was born in 1973 when Col James Johnson, his wife Matie; LtCol H.R. Kelly, his wife Jeanne; Col Herbert Bridges, his wife Jean; CAPT Louis Muery, his wife Mary Lou; Lt Col Tom Olson and his wife Lois met at Bradley Creek Marina and started the ball rolling. After several organizational meetings and the addition of a number of other interested officers and their wives, the SENCLAND Chapter was officially charted on 30 June 1973 as an affiliate of the national organization of The Retired Officers Association of America (TROA). Col Jim Johnson served as our first President and LtCol Tom Olson was the Secretary-Treasurer. Over the ensuing forty years the chapter has continued to grow with our current enrollment hovering around 250 members.

The name of the Retired Officers Association of America (TROA) was changed in 2003 to the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) and the SENCLAND chapter was re-chartered as an affiliate of that organization.
