Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)
The Military Officers Association of America (MOA) is a nonprofit veterans association dedicated to maintaining a strong national defense and ensuring our nation keeps its commitment to currently serving, retired and former members of the uniformed services and their families and their survivors. Membership is open to those who hold or have ever held a warrant or commission in any component of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Public Health Service and their surviving spouses. The local Greater Granbury Chapter of MOAA was organized in 2013. They support the Granbury High School Marine Corps JROTC with funds for travel, equipment and scholarships. Working closely with the local Veteran Service Officer and other local veterans organizations, they also provide help and support for any veterans who may need assistance.

A Field of Flags: Remembrance and Honor
Memorial Day Weekend May 25 – 28, 2018
The Greater Granbury Chapter of MOAA and its partners: American Legion Post 491, Blue Star Mothers, Marine Corps League and the Granbury Brigade are proud to announce the 2017 A Field of Flags: Remembrance and Honor. Born in Philadelphia on June 14, 1777, the flag of the United States of America symbolizes the patriotic ideals of a nation “conceived in liberty” and recognized around the world. This is a wonderful opportunity to visibly honor and remember all of our military and first responders–present and past–all of those currently serving, those who have served in the past and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Hundreds of flags will fly on Highway 377 during Memorial Day weekend from May 25 – May 28, 2018. Each 3′ x 5′ flag in our field will have a tag that will identify the person or unit being honored. All proceeds from A Field of Flags will go into a Veterans Support Fund sponsored and administered by the Greater Granbury Chapter of MOAA (Military Officers Association of America).
