Special Military Active
|Emphasis on serving Veterans - As a social club, we have chapters for golfers, computer users, and
for travelers who just like to travel. Married or single, owning an RV, 5th wheel, pop-up, our chapters offer
activities include simple pleasures such as playing games, socializing, sharing potluck meals on
weekend camp outs, and monthly luncheons; to involvement in community activities, and volunteering at
Veterans' Homes and Hospitals. Members volunteer and participate in Habitat for Humanity, the Marine
Corps sponsored Toys for Tots, and in the nationwide effort of "Sew Much comfort", just to mention a few.
|A National Muster is held every year, in states with so much to see and do--FL, OK, AL, WA, CA,
AZ, TN, VA, TX to name a few. These musters command attendance from 100-300 rigs and you
can't beat the price. Much like the National Muster, S*M*A*R*T also holds Region Musters for all 8
regions across the U.S. View our Muster Calendar to find a Muster near you.
