ABOUT OUR CHAPTER

The North Dallas-Fort Worth Military Officers Association is the local chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) serving Denton County and surrounding area.  Our chapter is 19 years old, and we have more than 80 members, including currently serving, former, and retired officers and surviving spouses.  We hold dinner meetings the second Wednesday in February, April, June, September, November, and December.

 

We received MOAA’s 5-Star and 4-Star Level of Excellence Awards for the past sixteen years in recognition of our chapter’s support of veterans and their families in our community, as well as lobbying for veteran's legislative issues at the local, state, and national level.  Some of our many chapter activities include:
