Grand Strand Chapter of the

     Military Officers Association of America


Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (AROTC) at Coastal Carolina University:

One of the Grand Strand MOAA Chapter’s core missions is to support the Army Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (AROTC) Unit at Coastal Carolina University. 

MOAA ROTC Leadership Medal/Certificate annual awards:  Near the end of each academic year our Chapter provides a MOAA Leadership Medal and Certificate to an outstanding junior or sophomore cadet at CCU Army ROTC.

CCU ROTC Commissioning Recognition Night and Color Guard presentation:  Annually, our MOAA chapter recognizes the graduating cadets who will be commissioned as Army 2nd LTs at a spring chapter dinner meeting.  We present each prospective 2nd LT with a set of dress uniform gold bars, a cloth patch insignia for their BDUs and a congratulatory certificate.  The CCU Army ROTC Unit provides the color guard for the opening of this dinner meeting.  

MOAA Chapter Guest Speaking and Mentorship Opportunities:  This year our Chapter has offered to provide guest speakers or mentors for CCU so the students will  have an opportunity to take advantage of the leadership and national security affairs expertise resident in our membership.
