President’s Welcome

Welcome to the Association of the United States Army and the Carlisle Barracks and Cumberland Valley Chapter!

As we embark on the new AUSA operational year that runs July 2017 to Jun 2018, we are encouraged by the interest, participation and the generosity of the Association and Chapter members, and look forward to another great year!  While we try to offer many activities, we remain focused on several key objectives:

  • Enhancing the Army War College experience for our emerging senior leaders
  • Supporting Soldiers and their families, Retirees and Veterans
  • Fostering a caring community committed to those who support the Army
  • Promoting education and awareness of important Army issues

As with any volunteer and non-profit organization, we are only as strong as our membership.  We therefore must rely on the good graces of members who are ready and willing to step-up and support our activities.  Accordingly, I am asking once again for your willingness to share your ideas and time – please let us know how you can support our efforts!  Whether you can volunteer for a specific event or would like to get more involved as a Chapter Board member, we would love to have you and I highly encourage you to give me a call or send me an email.

Chapter President, COL(Ret) Bob Hume, with Past President, COL(Ret) Jerry Comello, at the 2017 Golf Outing and Annual Fundraiser that was held 26 August 2017.  This was our largest and most successful fundraiser to date, raising over $16,000 that will be used to support Chapter events and benefit Soldiers and their families, Veterans, and the local community.


As I highlighted after I was sworn in as your new President, I am honored to serve the Chapter and will do my best to support the Army and serve Soldiers, their families and Veterans in the local community.  I am also seeking your continued support and help – as we work together to make this Chapter the best it can be.

Please let me know what you think and if you have any questions, concerns, or have any feedback, I would like to hear from you. Please contact us to make suggestions, request information about AUSA and the Carlisle Barracks and Cumberland Valley Chapter, or ask questions about our website.
