The Saint Paul Chapter of ROA is comprised of officers from all branches of the service from locations all over Minnesota and throughout the country.  We are in urgent need of members that would like to get involved at the Chapter level. Please stop by a meeting and check us out, or contact one of the officers listed to the right.

Chapter Meetings

The St. Paul Chapter will meet for lunch the second Tuesday of every month at 1130 at the Services Club on the 934th Airwing Base. Officer's from all branches of service as well as spouses are encouraged to attend.  The Club is located on the Air Force Reserve Base near the Minneapolis/Saint Paul International Airport.

We will hold meetings via Skype for anyone that may be interested. If you are interested in attending via Skype, please contact CW4 (Ret) Rod Rasmussen at, or Skype at rodney.rasmussen2
