  About The MOAA CenTex Chapter

CenTex Information Brochure

The primary focus of the MOAA Central Texas Chapter is to support the area and state’s military veterans in tangible ways.

1. Provide Monthly Membership meetings. We honor the colors, have a Chaplain led prayer, eat the selected meal, conduct a short business meeting, and conclude with a guest speaker. Our meetings take place at the Shilo Inn located in Killeen, TX.  Chapter meetings adjourn at 1 PM. The Board of Directors meets quarterly.

2. Provide scholarships to graduating High School Seniors who meet chapter requirements.

3. Provide sponsorship for local JROTC programs and honor an outstanding student from each of seven local high schools for their military leadership potential.

4. Advocate for appropriate legislation in Texas that supports military veterans in coordination with the MOAA Texas Council of Chapters.

5. Support worthy veteran programs in our area.

For 2017, we have meetings scheduled for the third Friday of every month, except during the month of December.  See our calendar.

Our Chapter visits the local offices of each of our US Senators and US Congressional Representatives, and our Texas State Legislators at least once each year to present MOAA’s position on issues affecting the military community.  We also support the MOAA Texas Council of Chapters’ efforts to pass legislation at the State level in support of active and retired military, and their families.  Finally, the Chapter helps to get the word out to members to speak out to their representatives on matters impacting the military.

MOAA CenTex History

The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) (formerly: The Retired Officers Association (TROA)) Central Texas (CenTex) Chapter was chartered on 21 November 1984. Membership is open to any retired, active duty, former, reserve or National Guard officer, or Warrant Officer, and Officer or Warrant Officer widows/widowers of the seven uniformed services.  The CenTex Chapter of MOAA is a member of the national MOAA organization and together we are the nation’s largest and most influential association of military officers.  We are an independent, nonprofit, politically nonpartisan organization. 

Our mission is to support national MOAA objectives, purposes and legislative initiatives; to preserve the earned entitlements of current and prior military members, families and survivors; to take advantage of benefits offered through membership; and to stimulate the fellowship and camaraderie of Uniformed Services colleagues
