The basic charter of the Association of the United States Army is a document dated 5 July 1950 - a "Certificate of Reincorporation of the United States Infantry Association as The Association of the United States Army." This certificate was issued by the government of the District of Columbia in response to the petition of the United States Infantry Association as a result of an agreement with the United States Field Artillery Association.
One extract from that certificate is of particular significance: "(2) the particular business and objects of the ASSOCIATION OF THE UNITED STATE ARMY as reincorporated shall be wholly educational, literary, scientific, fostering esprit de corps, dissemination of professional knowledge and the promotion of the efficiency of the Army components of the Armed Forces of our Country ...."
Under the terms of this certificate, the Internal Revenue Service has granted the national association exemption from federal income under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. This exemption is subject to review at any time and is dependent upon the association's adherence to the activities mentioned in the extract quoted above.

1950 - Since 1950, the Association of the United States Army has worked to support all aspects of national security while advancing the interests of America's Army and the men and women who serve.

The AUSA is a private, non-profit professional and educational organization that supports America's Army - Regular Army, National Guard, Reserve, Retirees, Government Civilians, Wounded Warriors, Veterans, concerned citizens and family members. AUSA provides numerous Professional Development Opportunities at a variety of events both local and national.
The Pikes Peak Chapter serves as a liaison between the Army and our local civilian communities throughout southern Colorado. We assist in educating the public about the needs for a strong national defense and the impact our Army organizations have on our local communities and the state of Colorado. Most importantly, we participate in a variety of programs and events in the support of our deployed Soldiers and their families.
We strive everyday for our Purpose, our Vision, and our Values. (shown below).
