Chapter Website:


The Southwest Illinois Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) is a professional organization of military officers supporting the efforts of a nationally chartered veteran organization comprised of more than 320 chapters that is defending the interests of active duty, Reserve component, and retired military members to the national legislature. Within our local area, we support other veteran organizations supporting our men and women currently serving and those who have served. We meet monthly on the second Saturday evening of each month at a different location from September to June and feature guest speakers from the area who are of interest to our membership. We also sponsor annual scholarship awards for children, grandchildren, or relatives of Chapter members. Our annual Scholarship Auction raises funds for the scholarships locally and nationally. We welcome your participation and membership in the national and chapter organization.
