Chapter 16 is proud to be an affiliate of TREA for five decades (since 1970) and the ONLY TREA Chapter in Kansas. Chapter 16's mission and membership categories are the same as the National TREA. Our Chapter does not charge dues but is self-funded "FREE WILL DONATIONS." Currently, we have 47 members comprised of all armed forces veterans and their spouses and rely on our membership's donations, fundraiser events, and support on membership renewals. A monthly newsletter is published. 

Our monthly membership meetings are held the second Friday of each month on the second-floor board room of the Saline County Senior Center at 1:00 PM, 245 N 9th Street, Salina, Kansas. If you are not a chapter member and a Veteran or spouse of a Veteran and attend one of our meetings, we will pay for your lunch. And we have a Guest speaker and gift drawing at our meeting. 

Chapter 16 needs more members to join, especially those that have served in Iraq or Afghanistan, to help us fight for our promised benefits on Capitol Hill.
