What is the Military Officers Association of America?

It's an association of (mostly retired) and active military officers of the armed forces who meet every month for camaraderie, to raise funds for college scholarships for children of active and retired service members, and to help lobby Congress for the benefits of active and retired service members.

Meeting programs include speakers who provide information about some aspect of the military, local business owners, and the occasional politician.

This month the speaker will be the Co-chair of the Southwestern Illinois College Speakers Bureau, who will present, "Changing the Face of Medicine: Women in the Civil War." The speaker, Mr. Kevin Monroe, will focus on the contributions of women during the Civil War.

This event is on June 11, 2011 at the Guild Center, at the Our Lady of the Snows Shrine in Belleville, Illinois. Buffet is served at 7:00 PM. Reservations required.

MOAA is always looking for new members. Call for more information, 618-624-6115 by June 5th.

Yolanda,
the Military Officers Association of America sure is a mighty fine organization. They sure do raise a lot of College Scholarship money.
