MOAA is the nation's largest and most influential association of military officers. It is an independent, nonprofit, politically nonpartisan organization.

We actively support the legislative goals of the Military Officers Association of America, state and national.

Chartered on 21 November 1974, CCMOAA is one of 16 Chapters of the North Carolina State Council.

The Coastal Carolina Chapter serves Beaufort, Carteret, Craven, Greene, Jones, Lenoir, Pamlico, Pitt, and Wayne counties. Our chapter includes officers from every branch of service Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, USPHS, and National Guard) both active duty and reserve officers, along with retired officers and their families.

MOAA's Coastal Carolina Chapter's highest priority is providing accurate and focused information and services to Eastern North Carolina's active duty and veterans in addition to, government and services organizations.

- We advocate and protect the rights and interests of personnel of the Uniformed Services and their dependents and survivors.

- We provide expert advice and guidance to our State and Local legislative members and play an active role in those topics affecting the career forces, our bases, the retired community, and veterans of the uniformed services.

We are the leading local voice for all members of the Coastal Carolina military community. Serve alongside us and make a difference
