In July of 1986, the Chief of the Chemical Corps, Major General Gerald Watson established the Chemical Corps Regimental Association (CCRA). This new organization replaced the Chemical Corps Association and the Chemical Corps Museum Foundation. The CCRA is managed by a Board of Directors composed of active duty, retired and veteran officers and non-commissioned officers who volunteer their services. The Board meets twice a year to review and approve plans and programs designed to accomplish the purpose of the association. It relies on private contributions and volunteers to accomplish its mission.
