Our Mission --Continued Service

* * * * * * * * * *

Ø  To inculcate and stimulate love of country and flag

Ø  To defend the honor, integrity, and supremacy of the Constitution of the United States

Ø  To advocate military forces adequate to the defense of our country

Ø  To foster the integrity and prestige of uniformed service

Ø  To foster fraternal relations among all branches of the various services from which our members are drawn; to further the education of the children of our service personnel

Ø  To aid active and retired personnel of the various services from which our members are drawn, and their families and survivors, in every proper and legitimate manner, and to represent their rights and interests when service matters are under consideration

We are united to form the Military Officers Association of America


For friends, our youth, and our fellow veterans, we active duty and former officers have come together to provide support, information, and fellowship to those whom we pledge to serve.  We continue to serve by expressing the needs of our veterans and youth to our representatives, and we continue in our oath to defend the Constitution, especially from the domestic enemies of ignorance, self-service, and abandoned principles.

Our service lies in grass roots advocacy to ensure and protect veterans’ benefits and in the mutual support of private veterans programs here in our community, including service to surviving spouses of veterans.  Our fundraising efforts support programs such as those assisting homeless veterans, veterans’ art, the Honor Flights, and the JROTC programs at Clearwater High School and Dunedin High School, awarding college scholarships to each program annually.

Through our website, our speake’s program, and our newsletter, The Drumbeat, we keep our members informed of vital issues being considered by our legislators and administrators.

Our fellowship is expressed monthly at our membership meetings and special events.

The Clearwater Chapter is an affiliate of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA). MOAA and its affiliated councils and chapters are non-partisan.

Why Join MOAA National?

MOAA is the country’s leading organization protecting the rights of military service members and their families. Those who belong to MOAA not only lend their voices to a greater cause, but they also gain access to extensive benefits tailored to the needs of lifestyles of current, retired, and former military officers. MOAA's greatest mission is to improve the lives of those who serve and their families, achieved largely through tireless advocacy efforts taking place in our nation's capital. MOAA's experts in Washington are there to support legislation that benefits the military community and are equally vigilant when fighting to stop legislation that threatens our livelihood. The larger our numbers, the greater our voice. MOAA Membership is open to active duty, former, and retired commissioned and warrant officers of the uniformed services and their surviving spouses, including the National Guard and Reserve. 

MOAA offers a wide range of personal and financial services exclusive to MOAA membership.
