Somewhere between 1787 and 1837, a larger number than two dozen disaster protection organizations were begun, yet less than about six made due. During the 1870s, military officials grouped to establish both the Army (AAFMAA) and the Navy Mutual Aid Association (Navy Mutual), propelled by the situation of widows and vagrants left abandoned in the West after the Battle of the Little Big Horn and of the groups of U.S. mariners who kicked the bucket adrift.
