MOAA is not just for Retired Officers
Six Reasons for any Officer -- Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, Former, Retired or widow -- to join your Local MOAA Chapter Today:

     1.  Make yourself heard.  MOAA's chapters provide critical grassroots support for MOAA's national legislative agenda. Our benefits are under attack and MOAA is in the fight to preserve them. Chapter members let their legislators know what's on their minds and open doors for MOAA's legislative team in Washington, D.C. In these difficult times, MOAA members need to stick together and our chapters are the best way we know to do that.

     2.  Giving back to the community.  Chapter members are MOAA's ambassadors in their communities, supporting countless programs that make a difference in the lives of others. These members have gone the extra step to give back in the truest sense of servant leadership.

     3.  Value added to chapter member lives.  MOAA chapters sponsor interesting programs and opportunities to ineract with civic, political, military, and business leaders on issues important to members.

     4.  Networking with fellow officers.  Chapters include second career members in the work force or retired servicemembers who have contacts in the community that can be valuable to transitioning officers.

     5.  Stay informed.  Chapter newsletters, websites, and meetings provide you the latest information on local, state, and national issues and changes to military benefits.

     6.  Influencing state legislation.  Most states have a council of chapters that unites every MOAA chapter in the state. These councils often lobby for and pass state-level legislation that affects military members and their families, such as exempting military retired pay from state income tax or increasing funding for state-run VA programs.

shall coordinate, support, and facilitate other programs and activities of the Federal Government, State and local governments, and other
persons and organizations in commemoration of the Vietnam War.”

ensure achievement of the objectives specified in law.
     The commemorative program will include activities and ceremonies to achieve the following objectives:

     1. To thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War, including personnel who were held as prisoners of war (POW), or listed as
          missing in action (MIA), for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the United States and to thank and honor the families of these veterans.
     2. To highlight the service of the Armed Forces during the Vietnam War and the contributions of Federal agencies and governmental
          and non-governmental organizations that served with, or in support of, the Armed Forces.
     3. To pay tribute to the contributions made on the home front by the people of the United States during the Vietnam War.
