The Treasure Coast Chapter of MOAA was established  to stimulate love of country and flag; to defend the honor, integrity and supremacy of our national government and the Constitution of the United States; to advocate military forces adequate to the defense of our country; to foster fraternal relations between all branches of the various services; to aid active and retired personnel, their dependents and survivors in every proper and legitimate manner; and to present their rights and interests when Service matters are under consideration.

We are a non-profit 501(c)(19) Veterans’ organization.  Our members reside in St. Lucie and Martin Counties on the East Coast of Florida. Membership is open to all active, retired and former commissioned or warrant officers.  Officers of the Reserve components and National Guard are also eligible for membership.  The surviving spouse of any deceased officer, who would, if living, be eligible for membership, is eligible for Auxiliary membership. 


Chapter History

Treasure Coast Chapter was begun in 1975 under the leadership of  MAJ Donald White ,Ret. USA.


MOAA History



MOAA was founded in Los Angeles, Calif., on Feb. 23, 1929. The first leaders of the association hoped that by joining together they could provide assistance and advice to other military officers. This concern for others fostered natural fraternal relations among members from all branches of the uniformed services.
 
By the beginning of World War II, MOAA's leaders realized that they needed to reorganize and expand to become an effective force on behalf of their members. In what turned out to be a wise decision, MOAA moved to Washington, D.C., in 1944 with a membership of 2,600.
 
After a membership vote in September 2002, the association changed its name from The Retired Officers Association (TROA) to the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), on January 1, 2003.
 
Today, MOAA has grown to a membership of about 370,000 members and is the country's largest military officers' association. MOAA's purpose also has grown to include career transition assistance, improved member products, military benefits counseling, educational assistance to children of military families (to include enlisted), and strong involvement in military professionalism activities.
