The mission of OEMOAA is to benefit the members of the uniformed services, their families and survivors and to advocate for a strong national defense, while providing needed support to the community and its members.
Our objectives are to:
• Educate our members and the public, to help promote and support our great nation and its constitution.
• Aid active and retired service members and their dependents and survivors.
• Inform representatives in local, state and the federal governments when legislation of military interest are under consideration.
