Why Belong to the NIA?

Started by Infantry leadership in 1994, the National Infantry Association is the professional association for Infantrymen and Infantry supporters. The NIA, chartered as a private, non-profit, fraternal organization, supports the Infantry’s role in the security of our nation; helps Infantrymen build closer affiliations with one another; and helps preserve the Infantry heritage. Your membership promotes the ONLY organization dedicated to supporting the Chief of Infantry and the entire Infantry community. Our increasing membership strength ensures that the Infantry voice will be heard by decision makers. You will share the camaraderie of like-minded soldiers and citizens who believe in maintaining the Infantry spirit, and you can help recognize outstanding Infantrymen through the Order of St. Maurice Award. You will receive the Infantry Bugler magazine, and you will support the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center at Patriot Park, and the educational values associated with it.

The NIA now has an expanded relationship with the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) which offers NIA members a free 1-year membership in AUSA starting April 1, 2018.This new offer includes a digital subscription to AUSA’s publications and the AUSA member benefits listed on their website at www.ausa.org.  If you are already a member of AUSA, this membership will be in addition to and not change your current AUSA membership.  AUSA, like NIA, respects the privacy of its members and will not share your contact information with anyone outside of the Association.  If you do not wish to participate in this benefit or share your contact information with AUSA, you may opt out on membership applications, or by contacting the NIA before 1 January 2019.
