The Army Officers' Wives' Club of the Greater Washington Area (AOWCGWA) is a non-profit organization seeking to enhance the quality of life of its members and the Military District of Washington community at large.
We offer friendship, Special Activities and volunteer opportunities. Additionally, there are Zip Code Groups to make it easier to connect to the military spouses who live near you. Our volunteers organize fun activities and share information about unique opportunities available in the Washington, D.C. area.
Funds are raised through the Fort Myer Thrift Shop in order to provide scholarships and community grants. If you love being with people and want to help raise money to better our military community, this is the place for you.
We have a new Name!
At our April General Membership meeting the members present voted to change our club name to:
"Army Officers' Spouses' Club of the Greater Washington Area, AOSCGWA"
Over the summer we will be redesigning the website and Facebook, notifying the IRS, state of Virginia, the Military District of Washington and Joint Base Myer/ Henderson Hall of our name change. This is an exciting time for our club and we are pleased to fully welcome our male spouses!
