One Powerful Voice!

Military Officers Association of America and Superstition Mountain Chapter

Dear Prospective MOAA Member,

The Hill, the most widely circulated newspaper on Capitol Hill, recognized MOAA as one of the best in the business, in the field of congressional lobbying at a July 26, 2007 awards ceremony in Washington. This is an organization that is looking out for you, all veterans! MOAA has obtained for us many of the benefits that we currently enjoy, and is working on manymore. The following will give more details.

Have you ever thought of joining the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)? This is an introduction and an invitation to attend.

 MOAA has been in existence for over 80 years, and is the largest and most influential of uniformed officers’ organizations (includes W/Os and former officers). The legislative arm has been on the forefront of military benefits improvements such as, health care, pay increases, retirement enhancements, etc. None would have happened without the strength of MOAA’s membership.

The Superstition Mountain Chapter is active throughout the year. Summer activities feature luncheons.  During the fall, winter, and spring months, we have a more varied schedule with picnics, a salute to our troops in November and our Military Ball in December, high profile speakers and other great events. You are invited to attend and check us out.

The Superstition Mountain Chapter of MOAA, is active throughout the east valley. You are encouraged to join our National organization and also our Chapter. The dues are nominal and the benefits may be one of the most important to result from your uniformed service. MOAA dues are $37.00 for the first two years for first time members, or FREE for Active Duty, National Guard and Reserve officers, for the first year. Chapter dues of $25.00 per year paid to December 31.  The award winning Military Officer Association of America monthly magazine and chapter newsletters are included in the dues. The magazine will update you on all MOAA benefits to members, as well as keep you informed on military and legislative news. We believe that it alone is worth several times the minimal cost of dues. It is a great organization!

Sincerely,

 LTC John Bushko, USAF (Ret’d.) – Membership Chairman

MG David Rataczak, USA (Ret’d.) – Chapter President
