1958. It is dedicated to supporting the goals and national legislative
programs of MOAA and preserving programs beneficial to retired as well

activities and meetings like the Thursday Morning Breakfast Club (TMBC),

The chapter works with the Florida Institute of Technology’s ROTC Unit,
15 Brevard High School JROTC Units and 2 Sea Cadet Units to help them with their military education. Part of that effort is to dedicate one of the chapter’s monthly luncheons to honoring the cadets, each of which are
selected as the outstanding cadet from their school by the school’s Professor of Military Science and his staff. The outstanding cadets, their military science teachers, and their school principals are invited as the chapter’s luncheon guests and any family members may also attend by making reservations through the participating school JROTC.
In addition to the luncheon program, each school holds an honors
assembly at the school where the outstanding cadet is presented
to the assembled student body and given the MOAA ROTC/JROTC Medal
and ribbon that the cadets are authorized to wear on their uniforms. A senior officer who is a member of the chapter attends the school’s
honors assembly and participates in the assembly program by presenting the medal to the cadet. The ROTC and JROTC Units also rotate presenting the colors at MOAACC’S monthly luncheons.
The chapter’s ROTC and JROTC Program Chairman, CW4 Robert John, USAR Ret. has been coordinating these luncheons and presenters for the school
assemblies and the scheduling of the Color Guard Units as well as the May luncheon for Academy Appointees and ROTC Scholarship Recipients for over five years. This liaison the chapter maintains with the county’s schools
is one of the most important and rewarding functions of the chapter, which has a rich history of supporting the ROTC and JROTC Units.
Every member should attend to honor and meet with these exemplary students, their parents and instructors.
