The Tarheel Central Chapter of The Military Officers Association of America, founded in 1978, supports active and retired military personnel, as well as spouses of deceased military officers in the Winston Salem, NC area (Davie, Davidson, Stokes, Surry, Yadkin and Forsyth Counties)
Welcome to our chapter’s website. Please take time to see and read –who we are, what we do, and what we offer you as an active, retired, veteran or former officer, or a surviving spouse. While full information on our current membership is locked for security purposes you can view a general overview of who they are in our Directory page. Those Tarheel Chapter men and women welcome you to join us.
As a 501(c)19 organization our membership includes active, retired, reserve, veteran officers (Warrant- Flag Officer) of the Armed Forces, NOAA and US Public Health Services. Our members are still active in community affairs, business, various professional occupations and volunteer services.
The chapter actively supports 22 high school JROTC and 1 college ROTC (Wake Forest University) programs in the community. (Listed download below). We do ‘the calling of military service’ visits, award MOAA leadership medals, and provide scholarships to deserving JROTC cadets. The chapter also contributes to various programs that support our active duty service troops and veterans: Salisbury Veterans Hospital patients, Toys for Tots, Clipping Coupons for Troops and the local USO. You may have a favorite program we would consider adding to this list.
Undoubtedly the highlights of our meetings are the programs and presentations following the comradery of our social and dinner hours.
When you think about your experiences in uniform, think about joining us to share your story with fellow service members and spouses who have made similar life altering journeys. We, your fellow officers, thank you for your service and look forward to greeting you and your guest at our next dinner meeting.
