Mission

The mission of the MOAA is as follows: to benefit the members of the uniformed services, their families, and survivors; to act as an advocate for a strong national defense; and to provide local support to the military community. One of the principle goals of the McIntosh Trail Chapter this year has been to increase public awareness of the Chapter and, therefore, reach prospective members.

Information on Joining the Chapter

Chapter membership is open to anyone who holds or has ever held a commission or warrant in any component of the Army, Marine Corp., Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Public Health Service, or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and their surviving spouses.

Chapter Activities

The MOAA chapter holds 10 meetings a year. (There is a break in July and August.) The meetings feature social time, a dinner, and a featured guest speaker. Speakers present topics relevant to the members such as updates on military affairs and world events along with pertinent information on prominent people and happenings in the county. A special Christmas program and party is held in December. The chapter works with two JROTC programs along with the USO in the Operation Support Program. Members actively support the Carroll County Memorial Park Association through their attendance at special programs and through contributions, both through the club and privately.

Legislative Issues

The MOAA Chapter supports the MOAA National Legislative Agenda along with the State’s Veteran issues. Elected representatives and local officials often speak to the club on these issues.
