Breakfast for your Brain

The National Naval Officers Association (NNOA) of Monterey is a military organization comprised of "All Kinds of People." Our Chapter is located at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California. NPS has a unique and opportunistic environment that gives us a multi-cultural platform to operate from. While our desired composition is one of ethnic diversity, our desired mission is one of ethnic representation, professionalism, unity, and pride. Our reason for existence can be summed up five bullets: 

  • Improve and assist in minority officer recruitment, retention and professional development.
  •  Identify minority problem areas and bring them to the attention of cognizant authorities. 
  •  Encourage maximum minority participation in all areas of the services and related military organizations.
  •  Promote camaraderie
  • Assist in establishing and maintaining a positive image of the naval services in minority communities.
