  1. MOAA is not an organization that I was aware of either. In fact, the only reason I became knowledgable was because they sent me a membership application in the mail. It wasn’t until USAA offered FREE membership in the MOAA for a year did I join. What a great source of information for Officers!

    1. I joined MOAA after the USAA offer, too! I figure If I am willing to be a part of NGAUS and Quad-A, this would be another great one.

  2. There are a lot of resources I wasn’t aware of, and wasn’t familiar with the organization itself. I think there would be a lot more use of the resources. Of course, I’m no longer on the inside and won’t get news about resources. Newsletters and alerts are valuable as well as entertaining. It’s hard, too, to make the transition from active duty to the reserves or civilian life and still knowing what’s going on makes that a smoother transtion. I know I liked the family-like sense of being a part of. I cherish that time.
