Special Notice: Blackhorse Association partnership with AUSA

As part of our continuous commitment to the strength of The Blackhorse Association (BHA), we are excited to announce that The Blackhorse Association has joined the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) as an Association Partner.

Because we’re combining forces, we will both be stronger, have a cohesive message to the American people, and have a louder voice on Capitol Hill as we advocate for legislation that is important to us both — issues such as quality of life, benefits, readiness, modernization, and more. We support each other’s goals, and AUSA provides us another way to show our support for the Total Army. AUSA, similarly, reiterates its support of our members and The Blackhorse Association’s mission and efforts.
