Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)
Greater Cincinnati Chapter
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.
All*Vet States is a web site hosted by the U.S. Chamber with employment, education and business start-up information for participating states. The site’s goal is to goal is to showcase states that are working hard to create economic opportunities for veterans and military spouses and to highlight the resources available to those transitioning military families.
“I’m very happy that Ohio has joined this effort,” Ohio Department of Veteran Services Director Tim Gorrell said. “Increasing the visibility of our state through the All*Vet States site is another way we’re elevating Ohio’s status as a veteran-friendly state, one that all veterans can be proud to call home. Ohio has worked aggressively to be a top destination for our nation’s veterans and military spouses.
Time is running out.
