Here are MOAA’s priorities for advocacy as the 117th Congress begins its work. Our focus remains on all eight of the uniformed services and their service-earned entitlements.

 

As protecting health care and service-earned benefits continues to be a challenge, MOAA will press forward in engaging Congress to shape outcomes in these vital areas.

 

There are steep hills before us. Our nation has a rising debt of more than $27 trillion, and a deficit of more than $3 trillion. In view of this, MOAA anticipates robust attempts to control federal budgets, reduce or eliminate unprogrammed expenditures, and reduce entitlements.

 

MOAA needs you to be at the ready to reach out to your legislators, and keep that engagement going as needed to make sure your voice is heard.

 

Our priorities may be updated, as warranted, during the next two years this Congress is in session. Together, we can succeed.

MOAA’s primary mission is to advocate in support of the earned benefits of active members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families.  The MOAA North Texas Chapter is very active supporting state and national level legislative initiatives.  Our advocacy initiatives focus on promoting a strong national defense and protecting the earned benefits of all active and former members of the military, surviving spouses of military members, and the families of active and former members of the military.
