The mission of the MOAA is as follows: to benefit the members of the uniformed services, their families, and survivors; to act as an advocate for a strong national defense; and to provide local support to the military community. One of the principle goals of the McIntosh Trail Chapter this year has been to increase public awareness of the Chapter and, therefore, reach prospective members.
