2017 Website Award Winner
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 141 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.
