        The Redstone Arsenal MWR (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation) is second-to-none in bringing quality entertainment (Oktoberfest and Concerts) to the soldiers of Redstone Arsenal and the folks in Northern Alabama.  Each year, as a fund-raiser, about 30 - 40 members of the Redstone Chapter of USAWOA work as entry control and security personnel to keep the partiers safe and having a good time. We were compensated for this event so we can go out and do other great things for our community.

Scholarship Providers

The Redstone Arsenal Chapter of the US Army Warrant Officers Association has set up its own committee to award Financial Scholarships to deserving young people in the Tennessee Valley.  Since 2004, we have given at least one scholarship each year and awarded thousands of dollars.  We look forward to continuing this great program in the future.

The scholarship program gets underway when announced on this website and Redstone Rocket.  Requirements and Application with Instructions will be located on this website. 

Bell Ringing at Wal-Mart for the

Salvation Army

    The Redstone Arsenal Chapter of the Warrant Officers Association Rings the Bells for the Salvation Army at the Wal-Mart on University Drive in Huntsville, AL every Christmas.  Of course, we do this on a no-fee basis. Most Bell-Ringers that you see are paid for their services but we are privileged to volunteer our time and efforts over a one-weekend period to Ring the Bells and waive any fee allowing more money to be used for the needy.  We participate with 4 ringers per hour (2 entry doors) for 10 hours.

Ramp Builders

In April, 2006, the Chapter found another worthy project. 

It seems a local (Athens, AL) disabled Veteran, battlefield injured (shot through the leg) in Vietnam, was having trouble getting in and out of his house.  The Disabled Veterans Association was willing to pay for the materials if we would build the Ramp.

We had so much fun, and felt so uplifted, we now (Since October 2006) do Monthly Ramp builds for C.A.S.A of Madison County.

We were asked to do a motivational video for CASA to show other organizations who were also considering becoming Ramp Builders.  You can see the video at http://youtu.be/GtUtRamS7dM
