WELCOME to the website of the MOAA Uniformed Services Nurse Advocates Virtual Chapter. If you are concerned about Military Healthcare issues which affect Uniformed Service Members (currently serving and Reserve/Guard components, Retirees, Veterans and their families), you’ve landed at the right site. If you’re a current or past member of a Uniformed Services Nurse Corps, you’re on a great path. We also require membership in the Military Officers Association of America, but that can be done as part of the application process at no cost. We also charge no dues! Our members have had interesting and diverse careers, with extraordinary expertise in many areas of nursing. Nurses have always been patient advocates, caring for them continues through advocacy for healthcare-related legislation and other important MOAA goals.
MOAA Advocacy in Action 2022 is wrapping up shortly. The goal is to contact every Legislative member of Congress to encourage support of the top three issues, identified by MOAA, addressing military benefits and concerns. MUSNAVC has 424 members in all 50 States, plus DC and PR, with outreach covering 180 congressional districts. All members were encouraged to participate using the “Take Action” emails through the MOAA Legislative Action Center or to call or visit their Representatives. Several members have joined their State MOAA Council or Chapters to meet with Representatives, either in person or virtually. Early indications reflect another successful event this year. We will keep you informed once National MOAA compiles the final report. We want to Thank each of our members who have participated in and supported Advocacy in Action 2022. “Never Stop Serving”.
This month, Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. In other words, the purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. We spend time remembering those who lost their lives and could not come home, reflecting on their service and why we have the luxury and freedom that we enjoy today. MUSNAVC remembers our brothers and sisters with a special virtual salute.
