“The Emerald Empire, MOAA”
This website is published monthly by the Emerald Empire Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), PO Box 767, Eugene, Oregon 97440-0767.
The Emerald Empire Chapter of MOAA is a Eugene-based 501(c)(19) veterans organization that meets regularly at the Veterans’ Memorial Building at 1626 Willamette Street. We have 110 regular and associate members made up of active, retired and former members of the nation’s seven uniformed services and their surviving spouses. This Chapter, and the national organization (MOAA), are a non-partisan advocate on military personnel matters, especially proposed legislation affecting the career force, the retired community and veterans of the uniformed services. As a local chapter, we focus more on the local military community, e.g., gathering clothing and personal care items for the patients in the VA Hospital in Roseburg. On a state level, we advise state Legislatures on allocation of funds used for veteran services. National organization areas of emphasis can be found at http://www.moaa.org/takeaction/
Emerald Empire MOAA is proud to share that we are a 5-Star Chapter, and the 2017
5-star recipient of the Col. Marvin J. Harris Communications award winner for Website and Newsletter.
