The Oakleaf Club is a social and benevolent organization made up of a diverse group of men and women residing in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area with one common thread–Military Medicine. The club has a main focus of supporting our military community through ongoing benevolence projects and we are also committed to promoting friendship through social activities and interest groups. Oakleaf is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, which is governed by a board of directors – all of whom are elected annually.
