The Military Officers Association of America, or MOAA, is an association of 370,000 military officers, including active duty, retired, National Guard, Reserve, and former officers and their families. It is an independent, nonprofit, and politically nonpartisan organization. MOAA's focus includes military personnel matters, especially in regards to legislation affecting the MOAA community.
The organization was called The Retired Officers Association (TROA) from its founding in 1929 to 2003, after a vote of members to change the name.
Headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, MOAA is governed by a board of directors consisting of 36 officers from the seven uniformed services: the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Public Health Service, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The current Chairman of the Board is retired United States Army General John H. Tilelli, Jr..
Membership is open to active duty, retired, National Guard, Reserve, former commissioned officers, and warrant officers of the uniformed services.
