Triangle Branch 182 was chartered On May 19, 1955 and was originally located at National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda now known as Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.  We now reside in Rockville, MD and meet at the American Legion Post 86.  Our Branch is part of the East Coast Region that consists of Maryland, District of Columbia, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina. The Branch/Unit are also members of the Central Liaison Committee that consists of local East Coast Region Branches/Units.  Click on the video to the right for more information about our Branch. 

We have about 100 members and operating under Article 12, Section 1216(a) of the FRA Constitution and Bylaws. Which are Branches whose membership is below 300 members and have an branch president and four directors for the subsequent Association years.  Our Branch petitioned to the Regional President for permission to operate under Article 12, Section 1216(a) and approved at the 2017 East Coast Regional Convention.  We hope to operate under full strength some time in the future, but we will need an increase in membership. 

Below are our elected or appointed Branch Officers and Committee Chairmen.
