MOAA: A new local chapter being formed

Mitch Steinberg

Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) is a nonprofit veterans’ service 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.

MOAA is the current Co-Chair of The Military Coalition (TMC) which is a consortium of 33 influential military and veterans’ organizations. These include the VFW, Wounded Warrior Project, Vietnam Veterans Association and a host of organizations representing every military service as well as the National Guard and reserve components. The TMC represents and protects the interests of 5.5 million members including active duty, National Guard, Reserve, veterans of the seven uniformed services, plus their families and survivors. This new local MOAA Chapter when established will join the other nine Arizona chapters in communicating support for these interests directly to our government, to include Congressional and State Legislative Representatives.

The Tucson Chapter of MOAA held a recent meeting in SaddleBrooke and local members agreed to move forward to establish their own MOAA satellite chapter. The new satellite will be named Catalina Mountains. This chapter will encompass northwest Tucson to include Catalina, Oracle, parts of Oro Valley and Marana, SaddleBrooke and Sun City.

The next meeting is scheduled Saturday, January 10, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. in the East Room at MountainView Country Club, 38759 S. MountainView Boulevard in Tucson, Arizona 85739; phone 818-1000. Future meetings are also planned for February 14 and March 14.

At this meeting we will elect officers and establish an agenda to move forward. Please attend and become involved.
