WNC-MOAA is a non-partisan organization

Our purpose, and that of National MOAA, is to advocate on behalf of issues which affect active duty members, their families, and veterans and their families. This advocacy is non-partisan; we are only interested in serving the needs of our active duty and veterans and their families and pledge to take no part in political activity outside of this advocacy. Although individual members may (and do) support different political parties or candidates, the Chapter and National MOAA do not and will not take partisan sides, again only advocating for the good of active duty members, veterans, and their families.
