Welcome to our Second Home - RAOWA
The Armed Forces Officers, during their services, remain bound together by ties of common ideas, identical hopes and aspirations. The bond develops further for common purpose, compact living and an accustomed environment. in the post service period, a retired officer enters into a different world where life treats him differently. Some manage to become favorably placed I the civil life while the less fortunate ones lead a life of constant struggles for overcoming continued domestic, social and economic problems. They are be-set by problems for survival and suitable opportunities for re-settlement in retired life and face despair and frustration.
With a view, therefore to creating a common platform of identical interest and purpose for mutual understanding and communication with each other and for effective voicing and solution of their individual and collective problems and at the same time rendering service to the cause of the nation and the community as a whole, the necessity for the formation of an organization of the Retired Armed Forces Officers has long been felt. From such a forum they can thrive effectively for achieving their common well-being.
