  • Provide presentations on historical and current CBRN events; along with presentations on activities that effect our community and the military
  • Conduct charitable, educational, and social programs.


Membership is open to retirees and active duty personnel of all services; current or former government civilians; personnel retired from or serving in the Reserves or National Guard; anyone that worked with or was associated with the US Army Chemical School; and friends that support the mission of the McClellan Chapter.
