Coronado Chapter MOAA Members are more than just members.  They are facilitators.  They successfully influence local government.  They publicize valuable information to other MOAA members and affected military personnel.  They recognize outstanding young people and help others in time of need.  And while doing so, they develop close and lasting friendships with others of similar backgrounds and aspirations.

Is chapter membership for you?  If you want to have a greater impact on your community and the lives of those in the military yesterday, today and tomorrow you need to join our chapter. We are doers and helpers. We have for 17 consecutive years received 5-Star chapter recognition from National MOAA, and in 2019 through 2023 have received 5 Star recognition for our Website and for our Newsletter “The Heliogram.”

If you’re still not sure, visit our Facebook Page and/or by attending one of our Coronado Chapter meetings (see below).  Joining a chapter might be one of the best benefits you’ll derive from your membership in MOAA.

MOAA has produced positive results on Capitol Hill in recent years thanks in large part to the support of its chapter members.  Improvements in Survivor Benefits (SPB) and in military health care including TRICARE for Life, active duty pay increases, and the repeal of the dual compensation law are just a few of MOAA’s recent successes.

Not only will you be enhancing MOAA’s influence on Capitol Hill, you will be kept up to date on rapidly changing military, political and legislative action that affects your life.

When it comes to changes in the military health care system or other military benefits you’ve earned, no one has more in-depth knowledge than MOAA and its chapter network.  Get plugged in today!!!
