Chapter Information

  • Mission Statements: 
    • MOAA: The association plays an active role in military personnel matters and especially proposed legislation affecting the career force, the retired community, and veterans of the uniformed services.
    • MOAA GREEN VALLEY CHAPTER: We are an active and growing organization with approximately 100 members from all the various services. Our membership includes auxiliary members who contribute significantly to our success. We meet six times a year at the Quail Creek Clubhouse in Green Valley. Each meeting features a guest speaker with a topic of interest to the members. We do not meet in June through August, but we may have a special mid-summer event. Visit this website for our schedule and description of events. The chapter has a Scholarship Fund to award scholarships to outstanding JROTC students from five local high schools. We also have a Military Assistance Fund to help the families of Arizona National and Air Guard personnel. Our chapter has been awarded MOAA’s highest award for demonstrated excellence for nine consecutive years and our website won national recognition. We invite you to attend one of our events to get to know us. Should you choose to join us, annual dues are only $20 for regular members and $10 for auxiliary members (spouses, widows/widowers).
  • History
    • The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) began in 1929 as The Retired Officers of America (TROA). Its original purpose was to counsel and render assistance to all officers in matters related to their retired status. Through the years, the association broadened its objectives to work on behalf of the entire uniformed service community. After a membership vote in September 2002, the association changed its name from The Retired Officers Association (TROA) to the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), on January 1, 2003.
  • Who We Are
    • Six out of ten retired officers belong to MOAA, as do more than 30,000 active duty officers.  Today, with about 370,000 members, MOAA is the nation’s largest military officers’ association and the main force among veterans’ groups in lobbying Congress to protect military retirement and survivor benefits.
    • MOAA is an independent, nonprofit organization operated exclusively to benefit members of the uniformed services, their families, and survivors.  MOAA is dedicated to preserving their entitlements and to maintain a strong defense.
    • The Green Valley Chapter of MOAA is one of several MOAA Chapters in Arizona.  The majority of our members live in the Green Valley area.  We currently have approximately 100 members from the various services.
