Our Chapter visits the local offices of each of our US Senators
and US Congressional Representatives, and our Texas State
Legislators at least once each year to present MOAA’s position
on issues affecting the military community. We also support the
MOAA Texas Council of Chapters’ efforts to pass legislation at
the State level in support of active and retired military, and
their families. Finally, the Chapter helps to get the word out
to members to speak out to their representatives on matters
impacting the military.
The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) (formerly:
The Retired Officers Association (TROA)) Central Texas (CenTex)
Chapter was chartered on 21 November 1984. Membership is open to
any retired, active duty, former, reserve or National Guard
officer, or Warrant Officer, and Officer or Warrant Officer
widows/widowers of the seven uniformed services.
The CenTex Chapter of MOAA is a member of the national MOAA
organization and together we are the nation’s largest and most
influential association of military officers. We are an
independent, nonprofit, politically nonpartisan organization.
Our mission is to support national MOAA objectives,
purposes and legislative initiatives; to preserve the earned
entitlements of current and prior military members, families and
survivors; to take advantage of benefits offered through
membership; and to stimulate the fellowship and camaraderie of
Uniformed Services colleagues.
