MOAA

The Northwest Arkansas Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America will hold its bimonthly breakfast get-together at 9 a.m. Dec. 2 at the Village Inn Restaurant on N. College Ave. in Fayetteville. Chapter members and prospective members are welcome to attend.

The purpose of the breakfast is fellowship, camaraderie and to share career stories. It's a great opportunity for prospective members to get to know current members and learn about the chapter.

Membership is open to those who hold or have ever held a warrant or commission in any component of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, Coast Guard, Public Health Service or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and their surviving spouses. RSVP by Nov. 29.

MOAA is a nonprofit and politically nonpartisan military association of more than 360,000 members dedicated to protecting and improving the rights and benefits of our enlisted, warrant and commissioned personnel who are currently serving, retired and former members of the uniformed services, as well as their families and survivors.

This mission is accomplished largely through the tireless advocacy efforts taking place in our nation's capital and local levels. The Northwest Arkansas Chapter, comprised of 130 members, actively supports these initiatives as well as numerous community service activities.
