What we Do!
Service: We participate in our service goal by either giving money to worthwhile organizations like Airman’s Attic, First Sergeant’s Club, and Patriot Paws, providing scholarship money to National MOAA for Scholarships and presenting MOAA awards to the ROTC and JROTC units in our area of the State. We have also adopted the Arkansas State Veterans Cemetery in North Little Rock as a Chapter project. We work with the Military Order of World Wars to present Flag Education to all of the fifth graders in central Arkansas. Last year we presented classes to over 9000 students.
Advocacy: As an active member of the Arkansas Veteran Coalition the Chapter lobbies the Arkansas Legislature and our Nationapresentatives and Senators to pass legislation for the benefit of Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve and Military Veterans and their spouses. This past legislative session we had great success on the military retiree tax relief to help stimulate economic development in the State. We have helped pass laws to give all active duty personnel State tax free status and give them in-State tuition rates no matter where they are located. We work on Veterans Treatment Courts, Veteran Homelessness and Suicide Prevention.
Friendship: There is no better place in Central Arkansas to meet fellow Veterans. We have monthly meetings and everyone is welcome. Starting in January and every other month thereafter we have a Board Meetings at which we conduct most of our business. These meeting are held on the first Tuesday of the month at Old Chicago in North Little Rock at 1800 hours. Starting in February and every other month thereafter we have a General Meeting which is designed for spouses and guests with a speaker and a limited agenda. We meet at 1800 hours at the China Pavilion, Hunan in the Apple Valley Shopping Center on JFK in Sherwood. Every month on the first Monday at 1130 hours at Corky’s in North Little Rock a group of veterans have been meeting for over 50 years. This is called the Hank’s Dog House group. Then of course there are the Retiree Breakfasts at the LRAFB on the third Friday of the month at Hanger 1080, 0800 hours
