Citrus County has over 20,000 Veterans with one of the highest percentages of Veterans within a county population in the nation. Our chapter members are active in supporting our Veterans. Please note some of our missions:
1. Camaraderie with a purpose- our 80+ members attend four chapter meeting luncheons with speakers from county government and Veterans organizations in order to educate members on the needs and solutions to our county’s Veterans issues. We have also a JROTC scholarship award luncheon; a formal dinner for the installation of chapter officers; a chapter fall picnic event; and a joint MOAA chapters luncheon with the Kingdom of the Sun chapter.
2. Our chapter members help manage and participate in various events during the November annual Citrus County “Veterans Appreciation Week”. We manage the “Veterans In The Classroom” program. We assign over 75 Veterans who give their personal military service history talks to over 370 school classrooms.
3. Our chapter supports our county’s Army, Navy and Air Force JROTC programs by awarding three scholarships to high school senior JROTC cadets; by donating funds to support each JROTC program; and by awarding MOAA JROTC medals to outstanding cadet juniors.
4. Our chapter members are present as board members or participate in many local Veterans and civic organizations such as the Citrus County Veterans Foundation, the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH), and the Veterans Appreciation Week events which include managing the Veterans In Tn the Classroom Program, the Veterans Day Parade and the Veterans Day 11th Hour Ceremony.
5. Our chapter actively engages with our county commissioners and our U.S. House Representative to educate them about the issues and the solutions affecting Veterans within Citrus County.
