                  About Our Chapter

Aims

This unit was established in October 1967. Membership is open to any retired, active duty, former or reserve officer, including Warrant Officers, and widows of uniformed officers. We publish a monthly newsletter, The MOAA REPORTER, which gives information on membership, meetings and Auxiliary meetings, legislation, local initiatives and other information of interest.

We are active in our community through our Personal Affairs Programs, Junior ROTC, Service Projects, Scholarships and our Legislative activities.

Our programs are varied and interesting.  We encourage members to suggest future program ideas and to bring guests and prospective members.  We welcome non-members to attend a meeting - the camaraderie is terrific.   Rides can be arranged simply include in your RSVP.

For 2014, we have meetings scheduled for the following months: February 26, April 23, June 25, August, 27 October and our Annual Holiday Gala in  December TBA.  Our chapter has an annual golf outing in September each year participates in the Veteran's Day Parade.

Our chapter visits the local offices of each of our US Senators and US Congressional Representatives 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.

In addition to legislative efforts, the chapter supports JROTC programs at 51 high schools, provides several $1,000 scholarships each year, visits and assists shut-in members, and supports local veterans programs.

We need your support. Your dues help us get the MOAA message in front of legislators and recruit new members. Having you on our membership roster enables us to communicate calls to action and other important information to you. Community and communication are infectious. Knowing that others are taking action to address concerns that are similar to yours is a great motivator to take action. So stay connected to your military roots by staying connected to the Greater Dallas Chapter and add strength to MOAA’s One Powerful Voice®.
