GREETINGS FROM THE SOUTH ALABAMA CHAPTER OF MOAA
Welcome to our website. The South Alabama Chapter of MOAA (SAC-MOAA) is an affiliate of national MOAA which is the nation's largest and most influential association of military officers. We are a powerful force speaking for a strong national defense and representing the interests of all military personnel and their families at every stage of their careers. SAC-MOAA also focuses on the interest of all military personnel but uses its "voice" on the local and state level to effect positive outcomes for our military. Both national MOAA and SAC-MOAA are nonpartisan and work for what is best for our military and their families.
