Our Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) chapter takes pride in serving our north Georgia community.
We know how important it is to communicate more effectively. That’s why we will use this site as an important way to help keep you informed.
Come help us serve and be part of our camaraderie! You will have fun and help others.
We have big plans for the coming year. Because we reached our target fundraising goal in 2018, we will be able to execute our ambitious program of support to past, present, and future members of the uniformed services of the United States. What we need now is more people to help us enjoy giving that support.
Come to our February meeting and volunteer to be a part of it!
