To report a Shipmate's death via e-mail or by phone at (703) 683-1400 ext. 1
Please provide the name and city & state, and if possible the members number. 

See attached form. ( Shipmates are encouraged to complete basic information on this form and retain the document with personal papers)

It is an honored tradition within FRA to acknowledge a shipmate's passing with a two bell ceremony at the local branch.  Additionally, the Branch may offer the grave side ritual. If the Branch does not first notify FRA HQ of the shipmate's passing, we will notify the FRA Branch, if the member was affiliated with one. 
The name of the shipmate will appear in our TAPS/in Memoriam section of the FRAtoday monthly magazine. 

FRA keeps the Fleet Reserve Association Book of Memories at FRA National Headquarters. This book lists FRA members who have transferred to the staff of the Supreme Commander. To have a shipmate's name included in the Book of Memories, send an in memoriam donation, along with the full name, rank and member ID, (if available), to the attention of the Fleet Reserve Association Finance Officer. Please make donation payable to Fleet Reserve Association along with instructions to add the Shipmate's name to the FRA Book of Memories.  FRA intends to create and online version of our Book of Memories in the next year.

If you have not seen the name of a shipmate in FRAtoday and suspect that he or she has reported to the Supreme Commander, please contact us with your inquiry and we will do our best to help you find a status. Note: we will not provide contact information for a current or former Shipmate.
