The Army Officers' Spouses' Club of the Greater Washington Area (AOSCGWA) is a group of diverse officers' spouses living in the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. In existence since 1974, the club is a social and charitable non-profit club.
AOSCGWA offers our members social interaction and volunteer opportunities. We hold monthly luncheons between September and May on the third Thursday of the month at Patton Hall on Joint Base Myer Henderson Hall, Virginia. Pre-paid reservations are required. We would love to meet you at one of our luncheons!
Along with the luncheons you can also participate by joining a Special Activity, or attending a Zip Code get together. Currently our Special Activities include: a walking group, cinema group, bridge, Great Decisions, tours and bible study. Our Zip Code get togethers allow you to connect with spouses who live in your area. We also have International Spouses that participate in our club.
