MOAA Statement Regarding Online Misconduct by Service Members and Veterans

Alexandria, Va. - The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) issued the following statement in response to the ongoing investigation into online misconduct by service members and veterans on social media sites.   

“Let me be clear. Taking care of each other in the military is just as important now as it was before and will be in the future. All service members and veterans deserve the highest level of honor and respect.  The online misconduct recently uncovered is inconsistent with the dignity and respect every member of the armed forces deserves, from both the public and their fellow service members. It poses a serious threat to good order and discipline. MOAA is confident commanders and service chiefs have the authority necessary to hold those responsible fully accountable for this abhorrent behavior and to establish policies to reform caustic organizational environments. MOAA will continue to monitor the investigative process and resultant disciplinary actions to ensure they produce enduring changes across the military enterprise affording every service member the highest levels of personal respect and dignity.”
