MOAA is a national non-profit organization operated
exclusively for purposes beneficial to the interests of the nation and its
Uniformed Services personnel, consisting of military officers from every branch
of Service – including active duty, National Guard, Reserve, retired former
officers and their families, that advocates a strong national defense and
represents the interests of military officers at every stage of their careers. MOAA is an independent, nonprofit, politically nonpartisan organization, widely acclaimed as the leading voice in Congress on compensation and earned benefit concerns for all members of the military community.
