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.

Your membership supports:

  • Placement of plaques and memorials in museums across the country
  • Construction of scale models of Escort Carriers and key battles in history for interactive exhibits on permanent display in various museums
  • The CVE Piper publication, an incredibly popular ongoing newspaper format publication that dives into different historical topics each issue as well as carries up to date news of shipmates and reunion events.  
  • A strong annual Convention that rotates geographically to make travel easier from differing parts of the country.
Your membership includes a mailed copy of every new CVE Piper published, access to MembersONLY sections of the website containing Membership Rosters and Archive material, as well as a discounts on ECSAA Products and the annual ECSAA Convention.  

Whether its an annual or multi-year membership that you choose, we would be delighted to welcome more members who served as a part of the Escort Carrier era, are descendants or other supporters of preservation of this chapter of history for generations to come.
