MOAA meeting notice

Mitch Steinberg

Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) is a nonprofit veterans’ association dedicated to maintaining a strong national defense and to preserve the earned entitlements of members of the uniformed services and their families and survivors.

Membership is open to those who hold or have ever held a warrant or commission in any component of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Public Health Service or MOAA and their spouses. MOAA chapter members are more than just members, they successfully influence national, state and local government. They provide valuable information to other MOAA members and military personnel. They recognize outstanding young people (ROTC and JROTC) and help others in time of need.

The Tucson Chapter of MOAA has planned its schedule of meetings for SaddleBrooke for 2014 – 2015. If you are an active duty or former warrant or commissioned officer and are interested in adding your voice and talent to the issues that affect you and your family, consider joining MOAA.

Next meeting is October 11, Saturday 1000 to 1300; lunch is available in the East Room at MountainView Country Club, 38759 S. MountainView Boulevard, Tucson, Arizona 85739; phone 818-1000.

MOAA Tucson Chapter has held meetings in SaddleBrooke for the past two years. We feel there is sufficient interest and participation in the SaddleBrooke Military Community to formally establish a SaddleBrooke Satellite Chapter. This meeting will be an organizational meeting to discuss how we can make this happen.

Colonel Allen Rossow, Arizona Council of Chapters, and MOAA members from the newly formed MOAA Grand Canyon Chapter will attend to share their experiences.

Please plan to attend. Contact Colonel Tom Owens, MOAA Tucson President, at 760-3476, owensttt@gmail.com or Mitch Steinberg at 825-0735, msteinb21@hotmail.com by October 8. Check our website, www.tucsonmoaa.com for information.
