MOAACC continues its work to help Brevard County schools

Members of the Cape Canaveral Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAACC) are excited about the 2019-2020 school year. On Aug. 6, they joined in the Brevard County secondary school teachers’ in-service day at Viera High School.

MOAACC representatives met with area teachers to highlight the Veterans Back to Class (VBS) program, sponsored by the chapter, in conjunction with the Joe Foss Institute (JFI) and the Brevard Veterans Memorial Center. VBS has military veteran volunteers visit classes to discuss citizenship, civic responsibilities, service, and military values with the students.

One teacher commented that she was not aware of the program, but said, “This is just what we need!”

Brevard County’s VBC/JFI program is one of the largest in the nation.

At the in-service, MOAACC members also met with the area’s JROTC instructors.

The MOAACC Good Deeds Foundation (GDF) provided each of the 15 area high schools with $600 checks — $9,000 total — to support and enhance activities during the school year.

Additionally, MOAACC’s GDF, working with the USO, contributed $400 to provide school supplies for 40 local school children in enlisted Coast Guard and Air Force families.
