The MOAA, Great Plains Chapter is comprised of former and Active Duty Veteran Officers from all the services. Eligibility is open to all former and currently serving officers. We are part of the National MOAA organization which has a significant role in helping to keep benefits in place for Service Members and Veterans. We meet the 2nd Tuesday of the month for our regular meeting with stimulating and dynamic speakers and every 4th Tuesday for a 1630 Happy Hour.
Our mission has changed a bit over the years. We are mostly a social organization. We meet twice a month, once formally and once informally. We try to live by MOAAs catch phrase, "NEVER STOP SERVING". We are active in gifting scholarships to ROTC Cadets at SDSU and USD and with providing initial sets of Gold Bars for commissioning ceremonies. We are also active members of the Sioux Falls Veterans Counsel.
