You defend the country. We defend your benefits.

If you are one of 23.3 million servicemembers, past or present, from all branches of the military and the three uniformed services, MOAA exists to protect your earned benefits and to offer you resources you can't find anywhere else. But most importantly, we're here to help you connect with one another. Why? Because we believe in taking care of those who take care of us.

Currently, we're 350,000 members strong. If you're an active duty, retired, or former military officer, consider joining our ranks. Because the more voices we have, the better we'll be heard.
