The National Naval Officers Association (NNOA) is an organization composed of active duty, reserve and retired officers, midshipmen and cadets, and interested civilians. NNOA actively supports the Sea Services in the development of a diverse officer corps through recruitment, retention, and career development. NNOA establishes and maintains a positive image of the Sea Services in communities and educational institutions.
