Thank you for your interest in joining the Escort Carrier Sailors & Airmen Association. We’d love to have you join the ranks of ECSAA members, more than 1000 strong. The core of the ECSAA Membership, from across >90 ships, are sailors, airmen and marines who were attached to Escort Carrier-related duty during WWII and Korea. And now, the most rapidly growing segment of our membership are the sons, daughters, grandkids of those heroes as well as other supporters who wish to help keep the memory alive for generations to come.
Regular Membership in ECSAA is afforded to anyone who served aboard or was transported aboard any Escort Carrier, or aboard any ship operating in the company of an Escort Carrier performing escort duty, air support, anti-submarine warfare, surface engagements, Military Sea Transport, Military Sealift or worked at a shipyard building Escort Carriers, or similar actions while in company with an Escort Carrier, regardless of category code.
Associate Membership is for anyone who is a spouse or widow of a Regular or Progeny member.
For all patriotic supporters...anyone who wishes to help honor and remember the heroism of those who served on or with an Escort Carrier while performing any of their many missions.
