Congress acts several times a year on issues that can have major consequences for you and your family. With the number of legislators with military experience declining, it is more important than ever for you to participate in the legislative process. MOAA member efforts generated more than 1.2 million messages to Congress in 2012. This guide gives you all the information you need to help have your voice heard.
