Why Join MOAA?

The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to support military officers

and their families at every stage of life. MOAA plays an active role

with Congress on behalf of the military community on issues that affect the career force, the retired community, and veterans of the uniformed services. 

In addition to representing your interests before Congress, MOAA offers a wide range of personal and financial services exclusive to MOAA membership. Whatever the stage of your career, your MOAA membership delivers benefits geared specifically to you – and your family. From active-duty service through retirement, MOAA can help you make the most of your career as an officer.

When you join MOAA, you become part of the strongest advocate for our military’s personnel and their families. The stronger our membership is, the stronger our voice becomes. Consider joining today because every voice counts.
