As you know WMA has been working on bringing our association a fresh new look. You voiced your opinion and WMA listened. As you can see we changed the red color to reflect our Marine Corps heritage.
For our chapters/members that have questions here are a few facts. If you have other questions that are not answered here they can be sent to [email protected]
