About Our Chapter

The North Texas Chapter of MOAA was established in February 2015. We are a 501c4 non-profit veterans association affiliated with the Military Officers Association of America. We are dedicated to maintaining a strong national defense and ensuring our nation keeps its commitments to currently serving, retired, and former members of the uniformed services and their families and survivors. We advocate for a strong national defense! We especially advocate that our government maintain its commitments to those currently serving in our all- volunteer force as well as to their families and the retirees. We visit our congressmen and all of our members and spouses are encouraged as well to contact them frequently regarding important issues.
